Why do we use unordered list for nav menus
I was just curious as to why we use unordered list in the navigation menu. can we not just use a main-nav div and then each nav items as separate divs inside? Is there any advantage of using unordered lists? because we end up removing the default list styling anyway. Thanks
Seems it's just been used so often it has become the standard (you could probably get away with anchor tags) and it's become easier for screen readers mainly.

I am not sure as I have yet to try creating a navigation list using the div element instead of the ul, but I think the ul being a block element would require less CSS code. I suppose if each list item were a div there would be more flexibility of design. I will have to try it!
