How is the page structure of HTML 5 different from HTML 4 or previous HTML?

A typical web page has headers, footers, navigation, central area and side bars. Now if we want to represent the same in HTML 4 with proper names to the HTML section we would probably use a DIV tag.
But in HTML 5 they have made it more clear by creating element names for those sections which makes your HTML more readable.

Below are more details of the HTML 5 elements which form the page structure.

  • <header>: Represents header data of HTML.
  • <footer>: Footer section of the page.
  • <nav>: Navigation elements in the page.
  • <article>: Self-contained content.
  • <section>: Used inside article to define sections or group content in to sections.
