There are different tags in the HTML 5
Section , Articles , Header, Hgroup , Navigation, Paragraph , Aside , Footer
These tags are used in the code to create a web page
In HTML 5 we use section tag's to divide the content. This is used to divide different sections in the
webpage .Previously we were using DIV tag's for the separation of webpage.
Foe Example Section tag is shown is here
<section> </section>Article Tag
In Html 5 article tad is used to make content of the page independently distributed .The article tag can have many sections inside or nested article tag as well. It is used primarily to make a content of the web page reusable
What is the Difference between Articles , Section , and Div
If the content is self-sufficient for a feed reader, use <article>
If the content is related with the page, use <section>
If the content is standalone but part of the page, use <div>
These tag's are used for heading in the webpage.
There are different heading tag's like , <h1></h1> , <h2></h2> , <h3></h3> ,<h4></h4> ,<h5></h5> <h6></h6> .
<h1>This is header </h1>
<h2>This is h2</h2>
<h3>This is h3</h3>
<h4>This is h4</h4>
<h5>This is h5</h5>
<h6>This is h6</h6>
In this aside tag , We can create a side panel if we are in the need to keep some content in the side panel that is related with the main content but not part of the content
Hgroup and "P" Tag
In Html 5, Hgroups are used for multiple headings and sub-headings in the document if we want to group them.
This "P" tag is used for paragraph . To arrange the content in the correct format.
In Html 5, Footer is a element that represents its nearest ancestor element and can typically contains author information, copyright information, links etc.
To place navigational link on the page, we use nav tag. Please note that this is not used to keep any hyper link of the page but only to those links that is intended for major navigation or repetitive in nature like main menu links, side links etc.
