The HTML <nav></nav> element was first introduced in HTML5 and was also introduced in Gecko 1.9.3. This element creates a representation of a section of a page that links to other pages or to parts within the page (a section with navigation links). It must not be a descendant of an <address> element. Not all links of a document must be in a <nav> element, which is intended only for a major block of navigation links; typically the <footer> element has a list of links that don't need to be in a <nav> element. A document may have several <nav> elements, for example, one for site navigation and one for intra-page navigation. User agents, such as screen readers targeting disabled users, can use this element to determine whether to omit the initial rendering of this content.
