Tabs can be a very effective interface design technique. If used correctly, tabs can help your users find the information they are looking for immediately.

Today, many sites use semantic HTML tags like unordered lists and heading elements to provide better information to search engine crawlers, while still making the site easy to navigate for their users.

This is a semantic tabs jQuery plugin that can convert any set of semantic HTML tags into beautiful, tab-based, navigational elements. It creates tabs through the use of <h3>, <ul>, and <p> tags to help search engines better categorize your content.

How to use it:

<div id="semantic-tabs">

  <h3>Tab 1</h3>
  <p>This is the content of Tab 1.</p>
  ... more tab 1 content

  <h3>Tab 1</h3>
  <p>This is the content of Tab 2.</p>
  ... more tab 2 content

  <h3>Tab 3</h3>
  <p>This is the content of Tab 3.</p>
  ... more tab 3 content
