HTML <nav> Tag

The nav tag is an HTML5 element that creates a section in an HTML document with navigation links.

The <nav> element is another frequent name for this tag.

It's important to note that a <nav> element should not contain all of a document's links. Only substantial blocks of navigation links should be placed in the <nav> element.

This element can be used by browsers to determine whether to skip the initial rendering of this content, such as screen readers for disabled people.
