JavaScript Treehouse Club - MASH MASH - HTML Forms, Divs, and Inputs

Cant seem to find answer in video!

is document divisions not a form element? and is that not what I'm seeing in this example?

1 Answer


A div tag if not part of HTML form structure. It is simply a divisional section of the HTML document. A div is primarily used to group other elements to help with the flow of the document when styling.

Where section tags are semantic div tags are not.

Hope this helps, you could always have a read of this page about the HTML div tag.
