Great and informative article! While using this kind of structure I sometimes struggled with adding css on these elements because depending on the design I would need to style sections or main elements etc. But I've researched that some of those elements shouldn't really be styled directly so then I would have to wrap a section over a div? Or what would be the best practice while thinking of styling all these different html5 elements?

Hm, I'm not sure what you mean. Do you have a specific example? I haven't heard of anyone saying you shouldn't style a <main> or a <section> directly
