Some more discussion and examples — for the big-picture layout and Uncle Bill exercises.

You can think of some HTML elements as "The Content"

Then other elements as "Organizational" / "Grouping" type elements - to group that content.

These were originally all divs (generic divisions of content) (generic boxes to group things)

Then HTML5 brought these new semantic "grouping" elements

You can use the elements in any way you want

A common way – is to use the correct (semantic) elements like header, footer, main, section, and nav – where they are suited — and then / for more generic positioning situations – use a div.

Here’s an example showing how divs are often used to position content in the center with a max-width.
