What is the purpose of the div element?

I read that the div element is for grouping. I thought we used opening and closing tags to group things. I have used the div element correctly but I do not see much of a different in the web page- might I see a difference later?

Hi Polly,

Your div elements have opening and closing tags. <div> all the stuff in the div </div>. These div elements ARE for grouping. You will soon see what can be done when you give your div a class and some styling.
