Description

A simplesect is one of the top-level sectioning elements in a component. There are two types of sectioning elements in DocBook:

  • Recursive sections, which are alternatives to the numbered sections and have unbounded depth.

  • simplesects, which are terminal. The simplesects can occur as the “leaf” sections in either recursive sections or any of the numbered sections, or directly in components.

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.

The important semantic distinction of simplesect elements is that they never appear in the table of contents.

Processing expectations

Formatted as a displayed block. A simplesect element never appears in the table of contents.
