   <p>When <code>article</code> elements are nested, the inner
   <code>article</code> elements represent articles that are in
   principle related to the contents of the outer article. For
   instance, a Web log entry on a site that accepts user-submitted
   comments could represent the comments as <code>article</code>
   elements nested within the <code>article</code> element for the Web
   log entry.</p>
