Alternatives for the < div > tag.

The < div > tag defines a division or a section in an HTML document. The div tag is used as a container for HTML elements - which is then styled with CSS or manipulated with JavaScript.

Although, there are a few alternatives as well!

Just letting you know, the <div> tags render strangely, and there's a little missing block and weird formatting. You might want to wrap it in a codeblock! :)

It should be mentioned that all the different tags you wrote about are not alternatives, per se, but rather semantic HTML.

The short description for each tag makes it clear I guess, and even if that wasn't enough, now people can see your comment as well ๐Ÿ‘.
