It's a reasonable discussion to have whether sections contain sections, or
whether we just use the heading number (h1-h6) to intuit relationships.  I
don't have a strong preference.  The CSS is probably a *little* easier with
containing, but it's doable either way.

Make your browser very narrow, and navigate to section 4.1, please.  Note
that your ascii art gets mangled, since it's not wrapped in a <pre> tag (or
a div with style whitespace: pre).

For more info on your choices for wrapping and whitespace handling, see:
