In the course called How to Make a Website, the instructor puts the whole image gallery of the website and the footer into a Div element and give the Div element an ID of “Wrapper”. What does he mean by Wrapper? What exactly is a Wrapper?

Hi Reza,

A wrapper is an element enclosing one or more other elements, much like a div.
