Footer Element in HTML5
Similar to the header, the footer element represents the footer for a section or document. Like the header tag there can be multiple footer tags in an html5 document.
A footer is more than content at the bottom. It should contain information about it’s containing element. Typical content you might include in a footer would be:
- Author information or bio
- Copyright information
- Links to related content
The above aren’t the only things you could include. Any metadata for the section could go in the footer tag. Remember that the footer tag isn’t meant to describe position within a document, but rather describe the data within part of a document.
