<book-part> Book Part

A major organizational unit of a book, typically called a “chapter”, but given many names in common language, for example, chapter, part, unit, module, section, topic, lesson, canto, volume, or even “book”.


Book Parts are recursive, that is, various levels of <book-part> are indicated by containment, not by different names for the interior parts. The body of a book part (<body>) may contain lower level <book-part> elements or just recursive sections that are tagged using the <sec> element.
