FANDOM


The HTML <aside></aside> element was introduced in HTML5. It defines some content aside from the content it is placed in. This content should be related to the surrounding content. The content could also be placed as a sidebar in an article. Such sections are often represented as sidebars or as inserts; they often contain side explanations like a glossary definition, more loosely related stuff like advertisements, the biography of the author, or in web-applications, profile information or related blog links. This element must not be descendant of an <address> element.


Attributes
