When I think semantic I’m thinking of viewing the code in a text editor and being able to envision how the page is laid out without having to look at the page in a browser. Should we use an empty element on our code just to say that, in the outline all goes well? untitled - not of the nobility; "of ignoble (or ungentle) birth"; "untitled civilians" √ 100% FREE. Or would you just rely on the old div still for HTML5? Or, we semanticist profound activists assume that all content, no matter what, (private matters aside), should be syndicated, hence, let’s use article at will Up until now I thought that was the only reason for the section tag (semantics in the code). So yeah, total misunderstanding on who I am trying to be semantic for, on my part. , […] html5doctor.com This entry was posted in Web Design and tagged HTML5, HTML5 Doctor. Ok, it is clear to me WHEN and HOW to use section and article, now would somebody explain to my WHY? You might also like the HTML5 flowchart…. When an element is needed only for styling purposes or as a convenience for scripting, authors are encouraged to use the div element instead. I’ve been tossing around some ideas in my head for the blogger blog I rebuild in HTML5. I still believe that we can use SECTION on both ways. Thanks for the advice and link. The draft says “User agents should provide default headings for sections that do not have explicit section headings.” I can foresee a user-agent generated table of contents being a morass of “Untitled Sections”. a) The footer should be used instead.
@Chris Krycho – This is open to reasoned debate, but in my opinion: 1. I will trust HAL9000 to make semantics of my pages in the future. Just trying to figure out what that might be. Despite their popular appeal, there are many individuals still asking:“Why do I need a robot vacuum cleaner?”


I see it has been address by the Rule of Thumbs! This new interpretation has the very limited useful application of long documents such as thesis. If you request relocatable output using the `-r ' option, a further link operation may change the value of a section relative symbol. View the pronunciation for untitled. His view on the matter is this: Radio, spoken books, tv, etc. @thinsoldier – you asked “yes or no”. I’m I way off base? That seems to jive (more or less) with the HTML5 spec, although it’s a bit odd that you would define a forum post as a ‘section’ and that a title is expected. Use the most appropriate element, @Oli: thanks for that, clouds of confusion passing, bright spells of illumination to follow, […] html5doctorに以下の一文があります. Unless you’re running something smart like Google AdSense, which *tries* to relate to the content on the page, most ads are just going to be whoever is paying the most.
Divitis is not only a disease, the counterreaction is a disease by itself. @Christopher so upload a template with dummy data already :P It’s hard to give more feedback that that without more info, @Rodrigo and @Bruce the spec mentions using
put off. A relative expression is expressed as a fixed offset from the base of a section. If that’s all the content, the section is unnecessary – its function is to distinguish one section from another; if there is only 1 section, then it’s redundant.


If articles can be nested it would be much harder to decide. This site is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial 2.0 share alike license. Just like rearranging slides you can drag and move the sections. And my original question therefor stands..why? and why?

And “Related posts” and “Recent posts” not a

If I am not allowed to nest articles I would mark a single animal entry as article. Sorry, but after reading this article i do not understand the difference between section and article any more :(. And I’m hoping that the statements on w3c are for conceptually cases as you stated.
oher infos...
Also speech readers for example can give the user a list of the headings on a page allowing the user to quickly access the content they want. Conceptually speaking, apparently and as far as I can see: we can’t.

Golf blah blah blah

The word technology is misspelled in your article…, Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? (taking to http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/sections.html#the-nav-element). What does independent really mean? If I have a literal top section and bottom section of different content it doesn’t mean I want to have a big heading for the user to see that says “Top Section” or “bottom section” because that would be stating the obvious as they will most likely be separated in some visual way with styling . You could also include the foreword and preface, possibly table of contents. Acrylic on PVC panel with plexiglass frame. a complete, or self-contained, composition in a document, page, application, or site and that is, in principle, independently distributable or reusable, e.g. In the case of newspapers, full-text search checks many words that researchers likely would not have read when browsing, where their focus is on particular sections and headlines, not the advertisements, schedules, and notices that make up the bulk of most papers. Looks like the div’s are still alive and perfect for just adding in style and scripts! As main content area doesn’t have a specific name, we use the generic ‘section’ tag. Untitled sections # Sectioning elements that do not contain a child heading will be labelled as “Untitled”, indicating the lack of a logical heading but preserving the outline as in the example below:
