A section title is stored outside the editable area of a section. It is displayed but cannot be removed or altered using the standard editing interface. This can be a useful way of building documents that are composed of specifically defined, or ordered, sections.
Properly used, section titles can also reduce the amount of training required by end-users. Following is an example of a section title before and after the section has been edited.
The markup for a section title uses the
<title> element and is as follows:
<section id="description"> <title>Description</title> <fragment id="1"> <para/> </fragment> </section>
If it is meant to be displayed to end-users, but should not be printable or considered part of the table of content, the appropriate mark up is the
@title attribute on the
<section> element as below:
<section id="description" title="Description"> <fragment id="1"> <para/> </fragment> </section>
