There are two types of block elements in Mallard: basic and formal. Basic block elements include paragraphs, code and interactive shell blocks, media, and examples.
Formal block elements, such as quotes, comments, figures, listings, and notes, can include a title element before the block element content. Some of the formal block elements may also contain descriptions and citations.
Some basic block elements can be inside a formal block element. For example, you can make media elements more prominent by putting them inside a
<figure> block. In the example below, the basic block element
<code> is inside the formal block element
<listing>. Note that the
<listing> block includes a title and a description before the
<code> block. The
<title> element contains a
<file> inline element specifying a file name: inline elements will be covered in the next part of this book.
<listing> <title><file>index.page</file></title> <desc>A first Mallard page</desc>
