    Proper structuring in HTML5

    Hello web design guru, would like to ask for some advice regarding my website. Apparently i have just begun transitioning to HTML 5 and it seems that i have poor choices or should i say not using the new tags like header, nav, section, articles and footer properly. What is the proper tag do i need to use in the "inquire portion"

    Here is the website i have created.

    http://clestportfolio.zz.mu/Teceruma/root/


    And also there seems to be a problem. The contact no. appearing at the top of the website seems to have a link that can be contact using skype, how can i disable that. It only appears on Internet Explorer.

    Here is a screenshot

    Using <p> is OK, although these days I'd just use a div without the <p>. Don't worry too much about the new HTML5 elements. You don't have to use them. They are just there if you want to give them a try.

    There are quite a few discussions about this online, with various solutions, such as this:

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3...er-recognition

    I can't test this, but my suggestion would be to look under the hood and see what styles IE is adding to the number and then override them. As a guess, it's creating a link, coloring it, adding some padding and a background image. You might be able to remove all those. If you like, target the phone number in Firebug and take a screen shot of the HTML and CSS so we can have a look.

    Off Topic:

    What an intrusive and offensive bit of functionality by M$. It's really up to the user to enable or disable this functionality, but I bet M$ doesn't ask the user up front. I basically gave up on Skype the moment M$ got its filthy hands on it.

    Alright thanks. I might as well go back to using div instead of html 5 tags.
