section — A recursive section.
A section is one of the top-level sectioning elements in a component. There are two types of sectioning elements in DocBook:
The section element may be more convenient than numbered sections in some authoring environments because instances can be moved around in the document hierarchy without renaming.
None of the sectioning elements is allowed to “float” in a component. You can place paragraphs and other block elements before a section, but you cannot place anything after it.
Formatted as a displayed block. Sometimes sections are numbered.
Use of deeply nested sections may cause problems in some processing systems.
