Editor X Essentials

Element hierarchy and parenting.

Hierarchy in web design refers to the structure of elements—like pages, sections and images—and the parenting model determines how the elements interact with each other. At the top of the hierarchy is the page and within that you have sections. Containers are added to sections along with elements like images and text.
