HTML5 question for TreeHouse.

HTML5 has new tags like nav and article, but none of the videos use those tags for the appropriate sections. Why is that? I think we should be learning the newest elements properly.

It depends on the video. I am going through the website developer basics track at the moment and all the video include nav, section and article.

This is true, I'll venture a guess that the HTML videos are meant to be kept as simple as possible. Throwing too many different types of tags could become overwhelming too fast.

With that said, it opens up for an Advanced HTML course where all of the HTML5 tags are gone over in great detail.

Thats my 2 cents. In the meantime, I'll share my favorite resource for this: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element

That is a great page. Thank you for sharing.
