Web Standard W3cHtml5ObsoleteElementHgroup


The ‘hgroup’ element is obsolete.


To mark up subheadings, consider either just putting the subheading into a ‘p’ element after the ‘h1’-‘h6’ element containing the main heading, or else putting the subheading directly within the ‘h1’-‘h6’ element containing the main heading, but separated from the main heading by punctuation and/or within, for example, a ‘span class=«subheading»’ element with differentiated styling. To group headings and subheadings, alternative titles, or taglines, consider using the ‘header’ or ‘div’ elements.
