When you say tag which one are you talking about?
Each html element section, article, h1-h6 and more have specific semantic meanings.
If you’re asking should you wrap an article with section tags without anything else included in the section the answer would be no.
Could you have article(s) within a section? YES
Could you have section(s) within an article? YES
Here’s some quotes from the w3c.org specifications:
article element represents a complete, or self-contained, composition in a document, page, application, or site. This could be a magazine, newspaper, technical or scholarly article, an essay or report, a blog or other social media post.
A general rule is that the
article element is appropriate only if the element’s contents would be listed explicitly in the document’s outline. Each
article should be identified, typically by including a heading(
h6 element) as a child of the
w3c article tag
The section element represents a generic section of a document or application. A section, in this context, is a thematic grouping of content. Each
section should be identified, typically by including a heading (
h6 element) as a child of the section element.
Authors are encouraged to use the
article element instead of the
section element when the content is complete, or self-contained, composition.
section element is not a generic container element. When an element is needed only for styling purposes or as a convenience for scripting, authors are encouraged to use the
div element instead. A general rule is that the
section element is appropriate only if the element’s contents would be listed explicitly in the document’s outline.
