Quick Tip: HTML5 Main Element
HTML5 currently allows the newly defined <main> element to be used to identify the main content area of a web page. This element should be present on nearly all HTML5 pages. It can greatly facilitate navigation directly to the content area of pages by keyboard and screen reader users. For pages that are not yet HTML5, the ARIA role="main" can be added to the main content area to provide similar functionality.
