Researching tags

I have been using Mozilla Developer Network HTML reference to research a few common HTML tags and try and describe their functions. Here’s what I’ve come up with:

<div>
Defines a division or section in a document. It can group block-elements together making it easier to style them.

<blockquote>
This indicates an extended quotation, usually indented.

<p>
Defines a paragraph. Browsers add space before and after a paragraph.

<ol>
Ordered list where the ordering of the items is important (eg. Placings in a race)

<ul>
An unordered list of terms marked with bullet points (which can be defined using CSS).

<li>
Defines each item in a list (the list can be ordered or unordered).

<nav>
A section of a page which has navigational links to another page or parts of a page.

<menu>
An unordered list of menu choices or commands.

<span>
A generic container very like <div> used to group elements and define a section in a document. It differs from <div> in that it is an inline element.

<time>
Represents the time (in 24 hour clock) or the date.

<q>
A short inline quotation.

<img>
An image.
