What Does Semantic HTML Mean?

Dan Gold

Written by Dan

Semantic HTML is the use of HTML elements to convey the meaning of the content, rather than its presentation. For example, using the <h1> tag to denote a heading, as opposed to using font size or color to denote a heading on a <span> tag.

This makes it easier for search engines and other applications to understand and present the content, which can be especially useful when displaying information on a screen or in print.
