Creating articles

What are articles and chapters? 

Articles: In Learn, knowledge is captured in the form of articles. Articles are like the pages in a book. For example, the design manual may contain articles for different topics like web UI elements, animations, navigation, etc.
Chapters: Similar articles can be grouped into chapters inside manuals. Chapters make your content more ordered and easier to navigate. For example, the web UI elements article can have chapters on input controls, pop-ups, and form layouts.
