Home Forums Other HTML5 Proper Structure – Form Tag Re: HTML5 Proper Structure – Form Tag


‘Form’ itself does nothing so, in essence it’s exactly the same as a div or section.

Here’s what HTML5 Doctor says:

> The form element represents a collection of form-associated elements, some of which can represent editable values that can be submitted to a server for processing.

So in answer to your question…yes, it would be semantically correct to use the ‘form’ element as a wrapper without needing to wrap it in another element.
