      Returns whether this tag element is nested within another tag element. Nested tag elements appears enclosed in "{" and "}"; certain doc tags, including "@link" and "@linkplain" are only meaningful as nested tags. Top-level (i.e., non-nested) doc tags begin on a new line; certain doc tags, including "@param" and "@see" are only meaningful as top-level tags.
