DOM Interface HTMLHeaderElement

Needs Examples: This section should include examples.

Notes

Remarks

Windows Internet Explorer 9. The header element is only supported for webpages displayed in IE9 Standards mode. For more information, see Defining Document Compatibility. A header element can 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 element is not sectioning content; it does not introduce a new section.
