Yes, this is wrong... It was also done in 2009... Code is ever changing.

Granted, most of what said in there is true. :P

The <section> is to be used when you are using a <header> element.

Sections are for document outlines...

OK great I will up that soon.

I guess I need to add <p></p> <section></section> <figure></figure> as well to get more clear picture of Html 5 Basic structure.

Eyes tired and can't see the code that well?

You can increase the font size of your code that you are viewing! From the menu select TOOLS > PREFERENCES > click CUSTOMIZE tab > click MODIFY HIGHLIGHT button

Here you can have all kinds of options to change things as you see in your code. It is a great feature you are going to love.

One of the things that's hidden in there is the character encoding used by the editor's text area. The default is ANSI, and you can type non-Latin characters in all day long and they won't show properly. If you are lucky enough to have your character set listed there, and if you have a UTF-8 fixed pitch font selected, you can mix two character sets. You have to have the right keyboards installed, of course.

If you need three or more character sets, as I sometimes have to do, then I think you're stuck.

Kudos to Kim for pointing me in the right direction. I was about ready to give up.

Unfortunately, this doesn't resolve the problem of actually rendering your page properly in a web browser.

This may be fairly obvious, but I hope other CC users may find this useful. I often like to use my favorite text editor to edit my code. When I registered it as an external application the contents of the CC editor window was not inserted into it. When I registered it as an additional browser voila! there was the code in the text editor ready to go.

Prefer to use Linux rather than Windows but insist on using the CoffeeCup HTML Editor, which CC builds only for Windows and Mac OS X? Install the Editor in a Windows virtual machine hosted by Linux! There is a bunch of new jargon to learn, but it really isn't difficult.

I'm running version 14, build 723 of the Editor on Windows 8.1, in a VirtualBox VM hosted by Ubuntu Linux 13.10. I run XAMPP 1.8.3-2 on Linux in order to view PHP-based Web work locally. Contact me at the address below this message if you'd like to see a couple of screen shots captured on this setup or want help duplicating it.

This won't save you any money. You're going to have to shell out $$$ for the Windows OS license anyway, because you'll have to see how your Web work appears on various MS-Internet Explorer versions. This requirement will last forever, since nothing on the Web ever dies, not even the 'blink' tag.

Running Windows in a VM gives you access to Linux's more robust filesystem and allows you to set up XAMPP the way it was designed to be done. Linux-side browsing locates Web site files relative to XAMPP's document root, for instance as localhost/MyProjects/. Windows-side browsing relates to Web site files relative to the Linux-based server located on the intranet, for example as //ServerName/MyProjects/.

Meanwhile, VirtualBox folder sharing supports the HTML Editor's project capability seamlessly and provides bi-directional cut & paste between Linux and Windows applications.

Yes, I looked just like that in 1962.
