Hi Hickson,

Thanks for the help.

There is one thing which makes me confused. You mentioned the <main> is
"mainly serves as a styling hook." If what we need is just a styling hook,
why was <main> introduced? We could just use <div>. So iiuic, the <main>
still has its purpose because it natively has the role "main". Please
correct me if I'm wrong.

Kind Regards,
Ian Yang
