HTML Checking for Large Sites
Rocket Validator integrates the W3C Validator HTML checker into an automated web crawler.
main element represents the dominant contents of the document, so it should not be contained within another
A document must not have more than one main element that does not have the hidden attribute specified.
A hierarchically correct main element is one whose ancestor elements are limited to
form without an accessible name, and autonomous custom elements. Each
main element must be a hierarchically correct main element.

Example of 2 main elements, where only one is visible:
<main> <h1>Active main element</h1> <!-- content --> </main> <main hidden> <h1>Hidden main element</h1> <!-- content --> </main>
The <section> element can be used to define sections of a document, like chapters, tabbed content, etc. Consider using a heading element (any of <h2> to </h6>) to present each section. Example:
<h1>All about guitars</h1> <section> <h2>Guitar types</h2> <p>Acoustic, electric, classical... we have them all!</p> </section> <section> <h2>Amplifiers</h2> <p>Analog, digital, portable...</p> </section>
The main landmark role is used to indicate the primary content of a document. It can be added to an element by using role="main", but instead it’s preferable to just use the <main> element. In that case, it’s unnecessary to make the main role explicit. Examples:
<div role="main"> <!-- this is a valid way to define a main role --> </div> <main> <!-- but this is shorter and uses correct semantic HTML --> </main>
