COMP 1850 - index

The objective of this page is to demonstrate at least two new HTML tags not covered in the curriculum as well as explain the semantic value and attributes/CSS properties.

The Aside Element

The <aside> tag is a semantic element which clearly indicates that while the content is not the main topic, it is tagentally related to it. Most browsers will display this element with the default CSS value of display: block;.

The Section Element

The <section> tag is a semantic element. It indicates content is being grouped in some way (by theme or chapter, etc). It typically includes a heading; content may be in DIVs or paragraphs. Most browsers will display this element with the default CSS value of display: block;.

The iFrame Element

The <iframe> tag creates an inline frame. This allows you to embed content from another source, such as an advertisement or a YouTube video, within the current page. This is not semantic as it does not indicate anything about what may be contained in the iFrame.

One of the most important attributes of an iFrame is the src which indicates the address of the item to embed in the <iframe>
