What is Semantic Code? Clickipedia

Share

What Semantic Code is: Intuitively labeled HTML code, which describes the meaning of each piece of content within your website—not how it looks. For example, if you have a list of items on your website, semantic code would require that you use <li> tags to label this section as a list.

What Semantic Code looks like: Common HTML tags are <title>, <h1> and <h2>, and frequently-used HTML5 tags are <header>, <footer>, <section> and <nav>.

Why Semantic Code matters: Semantic code is shorter than other coding methods, downloads faster and is often easier for multiple people to edit, thanks to the extra-literal language and straightforward structure that’s used.
