HTML <hgroup> Tag

The <hgroup> tag groups HTML Headings from <h1> - <h6>.

The <hgroup> is not supported in HTML5, but it's supported in WHATWG Living Standard specification. The future of the element isn’t yet clear; that’s why it is better to avoid using this tag.


The <hgroup> tag comes in pairs; however, the closing tag isn’t required.


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Title of the document</title>
      <h1>Welcome to W3Docs</h1>
      <h2>Here you can learn HTML Bases.</h2>



The <hgroup> tag supports the Global Attributes.
