Webflow Terminology / Naming Conflict

I’ve mentioned this before… and I’ve just continued dealing with it.

I find it confusing that Webflow has a container - called a SECTION.

When is seems a SECTION is simply a (smart) DIV.

  • and then Webflow provides another area (settings tabs) to properly identify a DIV as a (HTML-5) SECTION.

Webflow’s SECTION is not an HTML-5 SECTION. It’s a smart DIV.

CONTAINER is also a “smart DIV”… although there’s no HTML-5 conflict with naming. A CONTAINER simply auto-margins left and right for proper centering… but it’s still a DIV.

I hope I’m explaining this correctly.
