That terminology does take a bit of getting used to. Perhaps this little "semantic element summary" will help:

  • "a group of introductory content" :point_right: <header>
  • "a major section of navigation" :point_right: <nav>
  • "the main content of the <body> of the page" :point_right: <main>
  • "standalone sections of content" :point_right: <section>
  • "self-contained pieces of content" :point_right: <article>
  • "content that's indirectly related to the main content of the page" :point_right: <aside>
  • "information about the site, copyright data or related links" :point_right: <footer>
