Actually, it may tell you a lot. As it is 2.3 and not 2, you know it's a
subsection. If the sections are 1, 2, 3, 4 and each section covers a different
part of the program, it may be that each part has a different interface. If each
section has a #.3 subsection describing using the interface then you can
actually use this information when looking through the TOC, Index, or paging
through the manual.
