The section

Not every platform needs this object. However, if it is necessary to use this object, the content of a section object will appear very similar to body content. The section assumes the role of the lines, which affects both their application in the body and the role of the body with regard to the lines. As a result, it constitutes a hierarchical intermediate level.

In many cases, it is possible to avoid using the section. This assumes that the section object contains no text of its own in the resource, has no parameters, and implements no interfaces or methods. In such cases, a condition that filters the sub-elements (the lines) can be added to the formulas indicated above. This ensures that the formula only inserts those sub-elements that have met the condition. This also means that several formulas with different conditions may be required to achieve the desired document structure.
