You can also use drawers (as an alternative to inline tasks) for collapsible content.

Another potential is to use blocks. You can define your own kind of blocks, or even just use an org block and it is collapsible.

No, I hadn't found that. Thanks. Those links answer my question.

I see your point.

Maybe it depends on how you use org-mode and how you imagine the meaning of the "*" items. I see some disagreement about this in the old threads that Max linked to. No need to rehash it deeply here again; I was just curious.

The way I'm using org-mode so far, I'm not exporting to other formats, and I can see a use for collapsible sections in the middle of a larger chunk of text. I can already kind of do it with a "-" list item, like this. (Or other things like code blocks, etc)

* Heading
Top Text

- Sub
  This can be hidden if I hit 'tab' key on "Sub".

If you view a "*" item as "book section", it's confusing. But if you view a "*" item as "collapsible thing", then it makes more sense.
