HTML <article> Tag


The HTML <article> tag is a fundamental element used in web development to define a self-contained piece of content within a web page. It is typically employed for articles, blog posts, news stories, comments, or any content that can stand alone and make sense on its own. By using the <article> tag, web developers provide structural meaning to their content, aiding in accessibility and search engine optimization. This tag encapsulates content that can be distributed and reused independently, making it a vital component of modern web design for organizing and semantically marking up web pages.
