HTML <dir> Overview
The <dir> tag was used in earlier versions of HTML to create a directory list of files and folders. However, it is not recommended to use this tag in modern HTML, as it is deprecated and no longer supported by major web browsers. Instead, it is recommended to use the <ul> (unordered list) or <ol> (ordered list) tags to create lists of files and folders, and to use CSS to style them as needed.
That being said, the main use of the <dir> tag was to create a hierarchical structure of files and directories for displaying on a web page. It allowed web developers to create a nested list of files and folders, with subfolders represented as nested lists within the main list.
In addition to displaying files and folders, the <dir> tag could also be used to represent other types of hierarchical data, such as a table of contents or a menu structure.
However, due to its deprecated status and lack of support by modern web browsers, it is not recommended to use the <dir> tag for any purpose in modern HTML.
The <dir> was implemented in HTML 4 to list directory titles.
