When I try to use the one-page version that this URL refers to, it 
freezes or almost freezes my browser on a regular basis. I'm pretty sure 
it's not just me. So I very much prefer referring to the multi-page 
version, e.g.
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/sections.html#the-section-element

And I suppose by weird formation you mean the example that starts with

<!DOCTYPE Html>
<Html
  ><Head
    ><Title
      >Graduation Ceremony Summer 2022</Title
    ></Head
  ><Body
    ><H1

My guess is that it's an accidental result of some software used to 
maintain the document. It's not incorrect, just odd, because it deviates 
from the coding style used otherwise, both in the use of spaces between 
tag close (>) and in casing (capitalized tag names).
