Topic: DIVs in HTML5
Would anyone care to offer a bit of guidance on the use of DIVs in HTML5?
I'm aware that HTML5 gives options for more nuanced and semantic "blocks" than before. I get the impression in some circles that the DIV is as dead as the dodo. OTOH, it's still part of the spec, so it's difficult at that level to see what has changed wrt DIVs themselves. (That new working practices will develop is a given, I think!)
I ran across a helpful article that gives some perspective on this, but wondered what Godbitters might think. As one commenter asked (not me! but it's a good question, IMO), "Does this mean those html grid systems, with a gazillion div’s, will go away?"
