注意: 本元素已经从HTML5(W3C)规范中删除,但是它仍旧在 WHATWG 的 HTML 版本里。大多数浏览器都部分地实现,所以它不太可能消失。 
然而,考虑到<hgroup>元素的一个关键存在目标是明确HTML规范中如何显示标题的轮廓算法,但因为其轮廓算法(outline algorithm)未在任何浏览器中实现,因此 <hgroup> 语义仍旧是理论上的建议。
HTML5 (W3C) 规范提供了如何标记副标题,小标题,可选标题和标语(Subheadings, subtitles, alternative titles and taglines)的建议。

The <hgroup> element allows the primary heading for a document section to be grouped with any secondary headings—such as subheadings or alternative titles—to form a multi-level heading.

In other words, the <hgroup> element prevents any of its secondary <h1>–<h6> children from creating separate sections of their own in the outline—as those <h1>–<h6> elements otherwise normally would if they were not children of any <hgroup>.

So in the abstract outline produced by the HTML outline algorithm defined in the HTML specification (en-US), the <hgroup> as a whole forms a single logical heading, with the entire set of <h1>–<h6> children of the <hgroup> going into the outline as one multi-level unit, to comprise that single logical heading in the abstract outline.

To produce any (non-abstract) rendered view of such an outline, some choice must be made in the design of the rendering tool about how to render <hgroup> headings in such a way as to convey their multi-level nature. There are a variety of ways an <hgroup> might be shown in a rendered outline; for example:

  • an <hgroup> might be shown in a rendered outline in with a colon character and space (“”) or other such punctuation after the primary heading and before the first secondary heading (and with the same or similar punctuation before any other secondary headings
  • an <hgroup> might be shown in a rendered outline in with the primary heading followed by parentheses around the secondary heading(s)

Consider the following HTML document:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>HTML Standard</title>
  <hgroup id="document-title">
    <h2>Living Standard — Last Updated 12 August 2016</h2>
  <p>Some intro to the document.</p>
  <h2>Table of contents</h2>
  <ol id=toc>...</ol>
  <h2>First section</h2>
  <p>Some intro to the first section.</p>

A rendered outline for that document might look like the following:

That is, the rendered outline might show the primary title, HTML, followed by a colon and space, followed by the secondary title, Living Standard — Last Updated 12 August 2016.

Or, the rendered outline for that document might instead look like the following:

Rendered outline that includes an <hgroup> element, with parens around the secondary heading

That is, the rendered outline might show the primary title, HTML, followed by the secondary title shown in parentheses: (Living Standard — Last Updated 12 August 2016).


  <h1>Main title</h1>
  <h2>Secondary title</h2>
