The footer is an element that represents the footer of:
- contains information about its section such as
- who wrote it,
- links to related documents,
- copyright data,
- and the like.
- long colophons,
- verbose license agreements,
- and other such content
Some site designs have what is sometimes referred to as fat footers — footers that contain a lot of material, including images, links to other articles, links to pages for sending feedback, special offers… in some ways, a whole “front page” in the footer.
This fragment shows the bottom of a page on a site with a “fat footer”:
