Why are my sections numbered 0.1 &hellip;?

This happens when your document is using the standard book or report class (or one similar), and you've got a `\section` before your first `\chapter`.

What happens is, that the class numbers sections as “<chapter no>.<section no>”, and until the first `\chapter` has appeared, the chapter number is 0. (If you use `\chapter*`, which doesn't number the chapter it produces, the problem still arises.)

If you're doing this, it's possible that the article class is for you; try it and see. Otherwise, put a `\chapter` before your sections, or do away with section numbering by using `\section*` instead. An alternative way of avoiding numbering is discussed in “unnumbered sections in the table of contents”.
