could be considered useful by the reader but it’s not directly related to the news story. We run into a bit of an issue though if we use only headings to label sections. I posted an issue to have this fixed — please consider helping to fix the issue if you are good at coding in Java. I’ve done some checking (not creepy stuff, just using things like , so don’t judge) and few of my competitors seem to use and elements. The
element is used to represent the introductory content to an article or web page. I’m not 100% sure if using
in the
element like I have done above is necessary. You might even make the search engines happier too. Is there a real basic question to ask yourself to help determine when to use it? Note: We’ve used the ARIA role=”main” attribute here is it indicates the significance of this element to programs that don’t yet support the
element (such as some screen readers). And you don’t have to attend a $15k bootcamp to get you there. Using these sectioning elements also has the benefit of making developers think more about the structure of their web pages. As a general rule, don’t re-use a page id: use a class if you want to share styles across multiple pages, and use an id if styles are unique to one page. for setting different headers/footers on even/odd pages. If we build with it in mind, then we gain the following benefits: Take a look at this mock-up layout I put together and think about how you might split it up into sections. Note: To edit any existing header or footer, open the Header & Footer Tools by double-clicking inside the header or footer area. The aria-level attribute will define what the heading level should be for elements that have role="heading" applied to them. This will usually contain a heading element as well as some metadata that’s relevant to the content, such as the post date of a news article for example. About • I have a question, do you use any framework like foundation or bootstrap. Image: The simplified algorithm currently makes no mention of aria-label or aria-labelledby. This is when the aria-level attribute comes to the rescue. 3.
has no semantic meaning, so it is quite useful whenever we are altering the HTML purely for the sake of styling purposes. Great post! In terms of HTML markup, it looks like this: There is a very important semantic element that I used in the markup above that I haven’t covered yet and that is the
element. Take a look at the “what goes inside header” section. I guess it’s another HTML5 issue out there. Despite its name, the header is not necessarily positioned at the beginning of a page or section. Reliably appears in page structure analysis tools making it easy to test and debug. Here we look at whether these are useful when declaring language for HTML content, and if so, how they should be used. Note that the w3c validator accepts it. I feel like such a newbie again after reading this. Can assign a non-heading element as the section label. Although they don’t necessarily need to, sectioning elements may contain a single
and a single
