aside element - <aside>

The <aside> element is used to represent content that is tangentially related to the content around it. It is typically useful for marking up sidebars as shown in the diagram below.

The important point to note is that the content in the <aside> element must be related to the content around it. A good fit for the content in the aside element would be additional notes, reference links or glossaries of an article. A search box or unrelated advertisements is not considered a good fit.
