In this article, we define a footer for a document or section by using the <footer> tag. This tag in HTML is used to define a footer of HTML document. This section contains the footer information (author information, copyright information, carriers, etc). The <footer> tag is used within the body tag. The footer tag is new in the HTML5. The footer elements require a start tag as well as end tag.


<footer> Contents... </footer>

A footer element typically contains authorship information, copyright information, contact information, sitemap, back to top links, related documents, etc.

        a {
            font-size: 25px;
            text-decoration: none;
