    <nav>

    Introduced in HTML5

    Summary

    The HTML Navigation Element (<nav>) represents a section of a page that links to other pages or to parts within the page: a section with navigation links.

    Usage notes:

    • Not all links of a document must be in a <nav> element, which is intended only for major block of navigation links; typically the <footer> element often has a list of links that don't need to be in a <nav> element.
    • A document may have several <nav> elements, for example, one for site navigation and one for intra-page navigation.
    • User agents, such as screen readers targeting disabled users, can use this element to determine whether to omit the initial rendering of this content.

    Attributes

    This element only includes the global attributes.
