Awesome article! 👏👏👏 Great to see someone point out the advantages of native elements over re-implementing everything from scratch. Usually a11y articles omit to mention this.

Thanks! 😊 Yeah, this is so true. I've been studying for the Web Accessibility Specialist-certification, and as part of that, took a deep dive into the native HTML elements. I was so surprised, how much functionality they offer out of the box and wish somebody told me that before!
