Use of div

<div> HTML element sets a section or a division in an HTML document and groups elements for formatting with class or id attributes.

Warning: do not use <div> without the intention of grouping content. HTML5 offers better options that indicate the purpose and add semantic meaning - <article>, <section>, <footer>.

Example
<div style="background-color: #333; color: white; padding: 10px;">
  <h3>This header has same color as a div</h3>
  <p>This paragraph should have same color as div</p>
</div>

align

It specifies the alignment of the content inside the <div> element (not supported in HTML5). Apply the CSS text-align property as an alternative.

Example
<div align="left" style="border: 2px solid blue;">This div element has some text!</div>
