HTML5 Tutorial 6: Headers and footers

The header and footer tags have been simplified in HTML5, before you had to use CSS to define the header and footer and then use div tags to include them. Now in HTML5 it's just 2 simple tags! I introduce to you:
<header> </header> and <footer></footer>

<header>


The <header> tag specifies an introduction, or a group of navigation elements for the document and is used like so:
<header><p><b>This is a header!</b></p></header>

You can add whatever tags you want to the header, I used the paragraph and bold tags from a previous tutorial, Unfortunatley I can't show what this looks like because it is not allowed in Blogger.

<footer>
The <footer> tag is almost the same as the header tag, The <footer> tag defines the footer of a section or document. Typically contains the name of the author, the date the document was written and/or contact information, you use it like this:
<footer>This page is copyright Murdernickel 2011, All rights reserved</footer>
As with above, I'm unable to show what this looks like due to it not being allowed in Blogger.
