  • If the header element technique is not being used, a role="banner" attribute on the container element for the branding content can be used to define a banner landmark.
  • In websites that support mashups using iframe or frame elements, a banner landmark is allowed in each frame.
  • If the page is part of a website supporting mashups, use the aria-labelledby or aria-label attribute to differentiate banner landmarks in each frame.
