That's what a DTD defines. I have provided links to info about the DTD 
and how to use it in your favourite editor. This will give 
auto-completion in most editors, which will answer exactly this question.

Furthermore, in the document you linked to in your original post [1] is 
generated from the DTD. It provides a description of what is allowed in 
what elements. So, for example,  header is defined as:

Content model 	( title , subtitle ? , version ? , type ? , authors ? , 
notice * , abstract ? , meta * )

If you don't know how to read this or the DTD then I recommend you read 
a tutorial on DTD, any search engine will help you find a good one.
