sect1 — A top-level section of document
sect1 ::= (
The following parameter entities contain sect1:
Sect1 is one of the top-level sectioning elements in
a component. There are three types of sectioning elements in
Sections, which are alternative to the numbered
sections and have unbounded depth.
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.
This means that you cannot have content in the
after the end of a
Sect2. This is consistent with
the DocBook book model, because in a printed book it is usually
impossible for a reader to detect the end of the enclosed
second level section and, therefore, all content after a second
level section appears in that section.
The following elements occur in sect1:
Label specifies an identifying string for presentation purposes.
Generally, an explicit
Label attribute is
used only if the processing system is incapable of generating the label
automatically. If present, the
is normative; it will used even
if the processing system is capable of automatic labelling.
RenderAs attribute identifies how the
section should be rendered. In this way, a section at one level of the
structural hierarchy can be made to appear to be at another level.
Status identifies the editorial or publication
status of the
Publication status might be used to control formatting (for example, printing a “draft” watermark on drafts) or processing (perhaps a document with a status of “final” should not include any components that are not final).
