Like the <steps> element, the <steps-unordered> element provides the main content of a task topic, but particularly for cases in which the order of steps may vary from one situation to another. At least one <step> element is required inside the <steps-unordered> element.
Steps with only a single step may be rendered as a paragraph rather than as a list. Two or more steps should typically be rendered as an unordered list. If all of the contained steps are simple (that is, have no more than a <cmd> element each) then the step list should default to compact. Otherwise it should be rendered as expanded (with blank lines between each step).
