A supporting section of the document, designed to be
complementary to the main content at a similar level in the
DOM hierarchy, but remains meaningful when separated from
the main content.
There are various types of content that would
appropriately have this role. For example, in the case of a
portal, this may include but not be limited to show times,
current weather, related articles, or stocks to watch. The
complementary role indicates that contained content is
relevant to the main content. If the complementary content
is completely separable main content, it may be appropriate
to use a more general role.
HTML5 equivalent: aside.
The main content of a document.
This marks the content that is directly related to or
expands upon the central topic of the document. The main
role is a non-obtrusive alternative for "skip to main
content" links, where the navigation option to go to the
main content (or other landmarks) is provided by the user
agent through a dialog or by assistive technologies.
HTML5 equivalent: none.
