HTML+ includes two relevant tags:

   DIV1 to DIV6         these define divisions starting from each header
                        and may be inferred from the headers alone

   LINK                 used to define inter-node relationships

You can use the DIVs to divide up a large document into divisions
which can then be extracted and built into smaller nodes. The LINK
elements are then useful to specify the relationships between the
resultant nodes.
