Global attributes are attributes that can be used on all elements (though sometimes without effect on some elements).

A few attributes can be used on any HTML element:

  • dir, lang, style, id, class, tabindex, accesskey, title, hidden, data-*, contextmenu, contenteditable, translate, spellcheck, draggable, dropzone, itemid, itemprop, itemref, itemscope, and itemtype.
  • Both xml:lang and xml:base, deprecated, inherited from the XHTML specifications and kept for compatibility purposes.
  • The multiple aria-* attributes, for improving accessibility.
