im really confused with how to handle the site navigation on an html 5 page. The navigation is usually towards the top of the code with the navigation being on the left hand side of the page. Using the natural structure of the page placing a <nav> section around it puts the navigation right at the top of the outline. How do you reduce the importance of the nav in an outline without removing the section?

Being at the top of the page does not make it more important than any other section on the page. A section is just another section.

But another thing to think about is that site navigation does not need to automatically go into a nav element.
