HTML <hgroup> Tag

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

The <hgroup> is not supported in HTML5, but it is 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.
