In this DaddyDev lesson, Ryan E. Hamilton teaches the kiddos about HTML Divisions, or the <div> tag!

An HTML Division defines a division or a section in an HTML document. HTML Divisions are often used together with [CSS] styles, to layout a web page.

HTML Divisions are great all-purpose containers that can hold or wrap any other collection of HTML Elements (e.g. headers, paragraphs, images, links, and even other divisions). They can hold pretty much anything!

They are also used all of the time in basic HTML game development.
