[Pro] FW 6 Footers?

I saw this in the intro material:

Freeway Pro users will enjoy improved form items, including search fields, email fields, and placeholder text; and named (semantic) section elements, such as article, nav, header, and footer.

Does that mean I can now create a footer that stays where it should be automatically? I never have quite wrapped my head around footers, so have avoided them. Or is this something that requires the flexible layout thing? Haven’t tried that yet.

Not sure how the stock features of FW6 make footer creation easier, but what I can say is that my sites always use Paul Dunning’s “Make Item into Page Footer” Action (free):

I see that he even has a new version for FW6 out now. Give it a spin!

What it is referring to is that the HTML5 specs have named section elements such as article, nav, header, and footer - these weren’t easy to create/name in FW before.

It allows you to use the HTML5 naming conventions but does not actually create ones that do things like being fixed to the end of page content - you will still need to rely on a page construction method for that.
