HTML Blocks

HTML elements can be grouped together with <div> and <span>.

HTML Block Elements

Most HTML elements are defined as block level elements or as inline elements.

Block level elements normally start (and end) with a new line when displayed in a browser.

Examples:<h1>, <p>, <ul>, <table>

HTML Inline Elements

Inline elements are displayed without using a new line.

Examples:<b>, <td>, <a>, <img>

The HTML <div> Element

The HTML <div> element is a block level element that can be used as a grouping container for other HTML elements.

When used together with CSS, the <div> element can be used to set style attributes to large blocks of content.

Another common use of the <div> element, is for document layout. It replaces the "old way" of defining layout using tables. Using <table> elements for layout is not the correct use of <table>. The purpose of the <table> element is to display tabular data.

The HTML <span> Element

The HTML <span> element is an inline element that can be used as a container for text.

The <span> element has no special meaning.

When used together with CSS, the <span> element can be used to set style attributes to parts of the text.
