Subject: DOCBOOK: Re: Simplified DocBook Q: Nested Section elements

/ Peter Brooks <pbrooks@appliedsemantics.com> was heard to say:
| It does, Norm, and thank you - although it doesn't solve my problem that now
| arises with the layout that is wanted :) The subsection was to have been
| presented before the para belonging to the "higher" section that used it as
| a reference (but wasn't a subsection in its own right).

That's just not a model supported by DocBook. You'll have to move the
paragraph that comes "after" the inner section into the end of the
inner section.

Sections in DocBook don't float. In traditional paper documentation,
this is easy to justify: from the readers perspective, there's no way
to tell that the section ends between the two paragraphs:
