HTML5: Important Tags

In this article, some of the crucial tags that are used in HTML5 but were absent in the previous versions are discussed.

The <address> tag defines the contact information for the author or owner of a document.

The address element is usually added to the header or footer of a webpage. Consider an example:

The address usually renders in italic. Most browsers will add a line break before and after the address element.

The <area> tag defines an area inside an image-map (an image-map is an image with clickable areas).

The area element is always nested inside a <map> tag. For example:

The <embed> tag defines embedded content, such as a plug-in.
