<topicgroup> element groups
elements for common treatment without affecting the structural hierarchy of the map, as opposed

<topicgroup> element can provide linking relationships and shared,
inherited attributes to the set of elements that it contains without affecting the resulting
table of contents or navigation.
<navtitle>element within the
<topicmeta>element inside of a
<topicgroup>element is meant as a non-titled grouping element, so adding a
<navtitle>element to the
<topicgroup>element has no defined purpose, and processors MUST ignore the title. Processors MAY issue a message when ignoring the title.
See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.
