Semantic tags adding css styles?


#1

Hi,
I just read this article: https://webflow.com/blog/html5-semantic-elements-and-webflow-the-essential-guide

And it was very interesting. So I started tagging. But I notice something. When I used the Address tag, the text got Italic.
And when I used the Figure tag the div with the image got a bottom margin or something. It moved up.

Is this normal? Why is the CSS changed when we add a tag?

Browsers have a default implementation, which you can always override with your own styles

Hmm... Thats crazy.
I understand I can override it, but why even...?
Why should every address on the interweb be italic?

anyway, thank you @samliew :slight_smile:
