Divs One element that can help add structure to a document is a <div> element. Div actually stands for division and is used to mark a logical group of elements on a page. Divs’ divide the page into rectangular, box-like areas. These areas are invisible unless you turn their borders on or color their backgrounds. You should include <div> tags for all the major regions of your page, such as a banner, main content area, sidebar, footer, etc.
