Description

SimpleSect is one of the top-level sectioning elements in a component. There are three types of sectioning elements in DocBook:

SimpleSects may be more convenient than numbered sections in some authoring environments because they can be moved around in the document hierarchy without renaming.

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.
