If symantic HTML is more readable by the browser and makes it easier to understand html content then why learn div’s in the first place? Why not just learn symantic HTML from the outset?


Hey @stevesmith1802631825!

So if I understand correctly, your question is why do we learn divs when we are taught that header and nav are better to use.

I would say that the reason for this is because many people still use div instead of semantic HTML, so it is good to have a familiarity with divs

Hope this helps!
