A content node stores one piece of content. For example, a content-node could store the content of one single paragraph of your product documentation. This way, you could create one separate content-node for each paragraph within your product documentation. But it is also allowed to include several paragraphs in one content-node. Nevertheless, what is not possible is to create sections within a content-node. Therefore you cannot hierarchically sub-structure a content-node. If you think of the content structure as a tree, then the content-nodes are the leaves, whereas section-nodes form the structure of the tree (inner nodes).
Besides text, a content-node can also include images as well as lists and tables. Furthermore you can apply user-defined styles on parts of the content within one content-node. Detailed information on how to create content-nodes is given in Section 18.104.22.168, “Inserting and editing nodes”. The editing of content-nodes is described in Section 2.3.8, “Editing content”.
The properties of a content-node can be edited with the content-properties dialog:
