Section 4.7 Specialized Divisions

There are six divisions that have specialized functions, and therefore have less generic names than ones like <chapter> or <section>. They are <exercises>, <reading-questions>, <solutions>, <references>, <glossary>, and <worksheet>. They have some features in common, such as having a <title>, but each is different from the other in substantial ways.
Generally, a specialized division may be placed within any other division (Section 4.6), and it will behave like a subdivision of that division. Some may be placed in the back matter and may behave as a version relevant to the entire document. This section describes the specifics for each type of specialized division.
