The How And Why Of Semantic HTML
spans? But choosing the correct semantic HTML element for the job isn’t simply an ‘artisanal’ pursuit for philosophical purists — it can have significant practical benefits for usability, code reduction and future-proofing.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- what HTML semantic even means and how to use it to craft accessible interfaces,
- the UI that browsers provides with various HTML elements;
- obscure but very useful UI benefits of HTML semantics;
- how non-traditional web clients make use of HTML semantics, without you having to write any extra code.
