So why isn’t the
main element among the choices in the Insert panel?
main element represents the main content of the
body of a document or application. By definition, the
main element is for grouping content; it is not considered sectioning content. (Sectioning content includes elements such as
section which are expected to have headings and possibly navs and footers. Sectioning content shows up in the document outline. The
main element does not show up in the document outline.)
Where would Dreamweaver put main?
main a structural element in the Dreamweaver menu system? It seems to me that when you are building a page in Dreamweaver by inserting structural elements one by one, the

main? Aren’t we paying the big bucks every month to have the latest goodies at our fingertips? All the new HTML5 elements should be available to Dreamweaver CC users.
Tips on using the main element
main element can only be used once on a page. The ARIA

main element is used.
