The element “header” must not appear as a descendant of the “header” element.

A <header> element can’t include other <header> elements inside.

The header element represents a group of introductory or navigational aids, as in this example:

    <h1>Welcome to our Shop</h1>
        <li><a href="/toys">Toys</a>
        <li><a href="/books">Books</a>
        <li><a href="/shoes">Shoes</a>
