Sidebars are like miniature, parallel documents that occur inside other documents, providing related or reference material. A sidebar is typically offset by a border and "floats" to the side of the page; the document's main text may flow around it. Sidebars can also be likened to super-footnotes; their content is outside of the flow of the document's main text.

Sidebars are allowed wherever body elements (list, table, etc.) are allowed, but only at the top level of a section or document. Sidebars cannot nest inside sidebars, topics, or body elements; you can't have a sidebar inside a table, list, block quote, etc.
