    Basically semantics is the study of the meanings of words and phrases in a language. Semantic elements or tags in html are elements with a meaning. A semantic element clearly describes its meaning to both the browser and the developer. -Examples of non-semantic elements: DIV and SPAN - Tells nothing about its content. -Examples of semantic elements: FORM, FORM, and IMG - Clearly defines its content. HTML5 offers new semantic elements to define different parts of a web page: for instance: header tag, aside tag, footer tag, nav tag, etc. Semantic tags also help search engines to target your web page's content accurately and easily.
