The HTML <header> element represents introductory content, typically a group of introductory or navigational aids. It may contain some heading elements but also other elements like a logo, a search form, an author name, and so on.

Sisäsltökategoriat Virtaussisältö, palpable content.
Sallittu sisältö Virtaussisältö, but with no <header> or <footer> descendant.
Tagin pois jättäminen None, both the starting and ending tag are mandatory.
Sallitut vanhemmat Any element that accepts flow content. Note that a <header> element must not be a descendant of an <address>, <footer> or another <header> element.
Sallitut ARIA roolit group, presentation
DOM rajapinta HTMLElement


The <header> element is not sectioning content and therefore does not introduce a new section in the outline. That said, a <header> element is intended to usually contain the surrounding section's heading (an h1h6 element), but this is not required.


Tämä elementti sisältää vain globaalit ominaisuudet.
