Information unit

“Information unit” is a term from DITA, structured auhoring and information models.

The smallest information unit is a “topic”: it is a short piece of text explaining a single subject or answering a single question.

Every topic is a specific information type (concept, task/procedure, reference …).

You build topics with components (titles, sections, paragraphs …) and combine them to create bigger information units (such as chapters and volumes).
