The <header> tag in HTML is used to define the header for a document. It contains information related to the title and heading of the related content. The <header> element is intended to usually contain the section’s heading (an h1-h6 element or an <hgroup> element), but this is not required.

The <header> element can also be used to wrap a section’s table of contents, a search form, or any relevant logos. The <header> tag is a new tag in HTML5 and it requires a starting tag as well as an end tag. There can be several <header> elements in one document. A <header> tag cannot be placed within a <footer>, <address> or another <header> element.

In this article, we will discuss the tag that will define the header for an HTML document.
