<section> element represents an organizational division in a
topic. Sections are used to organize subsets of information that are directly related to the
<section> elements within a single topic do not represent
a hierarchy, but rather peer divisions of that topic. Sections cannot be nested. A
can have an optional title.
For example, the titles Reference Syntax and Properties might represent
section-level discourse within a topic about a command-line process—the content in each
<section> relates uniquely to the subject of that topic.
<title>to appear anywhere as a child of
<section>. However, the intent of the specification is that
<title>should only be used once in any
<section>, and when used, it should precede any other text or element content.
