Divs Sections & Articles
Whats the differance?
For the last few weeks i have been relearning my web dev skills and making
a site for a small business idea.
My last(practice) version used Divs, the site rendered pretty much right in every browser.
My newer version used the newer 'Section' and 'Article' tags.
I really couldn't see a difference between them and good ol' Divs.
But I used em because a book stated their better.
I thought they were doing fine, my site looked nice in IE9, latest FF and safari..
But then i opened it in IE8....
as far as i can tell, ie8 does not apply css data to sections and articles...
Either that or i did something VERY wrong.
Anyway, my point is:
I changed all articles and sections to divs...
No my site renders fine in all browsers and versions that i can check...
So what can sections and articles do that divs cant do better?
I'm sure there must be something...
IE8 does not have native support for the HTML 5-specific tags you're using. Look into tools like Modernizr which can expand the compatibility of HTML 5 with older browsers.
