<div> tag is a container. Think it as a box where you can introduce elements. Syntax: <div> <!--Elements to introduce on the div--> </div> Example: <div> <p>This text is in a div</p> </div> You can style later the containers with css. RECOMMENDATION: finish html sololearn’s course.

div tag makes more sense once you also learn CSS and JS. In pure html, it doesn't do a whole lot.

Div tag is a container. It is used to store different values, such as <img>, <p> or even <div>. It is useless if you just run it on HTML, as t actually works in style sheets. A div tag can be used in a style sheet to style multiple elements once, by giving the div tag a class and styling it through the class name, in the style sheet. Here is an example: HTML: <div class = "test"> <h1>This is a simple heading</h1> <p>This is a simple paragraph</p> </div> CSS: .test { font-color: blue; } The above script will turn the paragraph and the heading bue.

You typed this so that means we can give div tag a name by typing this <div class ="___" you can name it? Ok But what is this symbol { and } you just used it in CSS

In HTML, the <div> tag is a container tag that is used to group together HTML elements and apply styles or scripts to them collectively. The word "div" stands for "division," and the <div> tag essentially creates a rectangular block that can be used to hold other HTML elements. The <div> tag itself does not have any inherent visual or semantic meaning; its purpose is simply to group together other HTML elements. It is commonly used in conjunction with CSS to create layout and styling for web pages. By grouping together related HTML elements with the <div> tag, developers can apply styles and scripts to those elements as a group, rather than having to apply them to each individual element separately. For example, a group of related navigation links on a website might be contained within a <div> tag, which would allow developers to apply styling to the entire group of links at once, rather than having to style each individual link separately.
