The steps-informal element allows authors to describe procedural task information without placing each step in an individual container element, which is a requirement of the related steps and steps-unordered elements. For example, steps-informal might contain a paragraph that describes more than one step in a single sentence, or it might contain sentences that mix steps together with information about the steps.
