The navbar provides context through globally accessible menu options.


  • Use unordered list <ul> groups for navbar items.
  • Place navbar (the list group) in a nav element. The nav element should also be marked with aria-label="main navigation" to clearly describe the type of navigation.
  • Place the nav element within the <header> region.
  • Use the aria-current="true" attribute to indicate the item that is currently selected, or—in a navigational context—use aria-current="page" to indicate the page that is currently selected. The aria-current attribute should be updated when the user makes a selection.
  • Provide alt text for product logo.
  • Provide tooltips for icons.
