Jaws announces nesting levels on web pages. What exactly is a nesting level?

Richard Turner


"You know," said Arthur, "it's at times like this, when I'm trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space, that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young."
"Why, what did she tell you?"
"I don't know, I didn't listen."

If you think about the classic format for an outline, where Roman Numerals are used for primary divisions, numbers to differentiate sections under primary divisions, lowercase letters to differentiate sub-sections under sections, and lowercase Roman numerals to designate sub-sub-sections, the concept is very much the same.  Each of those is a nesting level.

But, as Mr. Turner's reference notes, you can nest things of the same type within each other.   You could consider an outline as a sort of list with additional lists nested within it, and the way those lists are differentiated from each other show the nesting level.
