Hello everyone and thanks for your help in advance. I am developing a responsive site from the ground up as a learning experience. One of the questions I need clarification on is when to use the <aside> tag. Would it ever be used for any type of sidebar
navigation or is this simply for sidebar type of content? Would the <navigation> tag be used only for top navigation or for any navigation on the page?

One of the questions I need clarification on is when to use the <aside> tag.
The aside element represents a section of a page that consists of content that is tangentially related to the content around the aside element, and which could be considered separate from that content. Such sections are often represented as sidebars in printed
Would the <navigation> tag be used only for top navigation or for any navigation on the page?
As bruce said above, it’s just a semantic element with a meaning instead of substantial function. With the semantic markup, you could write some CSS style to beautify your navigation easily because all the navigation content is inside your nav tag. Therefore,
it could be used for any navigation on your page.
