I parse that excerpt as "Hide (everything but the top LEVELS levels of
headers)", with parenthesis used for grouping as in Mathematics.  But
in an outline buffer, "everything but the top LEVELS levels of
headers" means "headers of level > LEVELS and all bodies".  Therefore
I interpret the excerpt as "hide (headers of level > LEVELS and all
bodies)", with no action for headers of level ≤ LEVELS. Thus if a
header of level ≤ LEVELS started hidden, in principle it would stay
hidden.  Perhaps I am just misunderstanding English.  My native and
primary language is Portuguese.  If you think the current wording is
clear then we can leave it as is.
