Navs available in Bootstrap have shared markup, starting with the base .nav class, as well as shared states. Swap modifier classes to switch between each style.

Using navs for tab panels requires JavaScript tabs plugin

For tabs with tabbable areas, you must use the tabs JavaScript plugin. The markup will also require additional role and ARIA attributes – see the plugin's example markup for further details.

Make navs used as navigation accessible

If you are using navs to provide a navigation bar, be sure to add a role="navigation" to the most logical parent container of the <ul>, or wrap a <nav> element around the whole navigation. Do not add the role to the <ul> itself, as this would prevent it from being announced as an actual list by assistive technologies.
