<article> element – represents content that forms a section of content which is independent. Think in terms of a magazine article.

Usage: often used in weblogs and syndicated web pages where contents may be re-purposed or used elsewhere (on the site or other sites) .

Permitted Content: style elements and flow content. The <article> element must not be a descendant of the <address> element.

Tag omission: both start and end tag must be present.

Example code:

<h2>Yes, this is WordPress</h2>
<h3>Posted on <time datetime=”2010-07-14″ pubdate>July 14, 2010</time> by Mark DuBois</h3>
