The no-topic-nesting element is a placeholder in the DITA architecture. It is not actually used by the default DITA document types; it is for use only when creating a validly customized document type where the information designer wants to eliminate the ability to nest topics. Not intended for use by authors, and has no associated output processing.
See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.
This element is not intended to be used in source files.
