The configuration system completely parses configuration files to collect configuration information and throws exceptions when it encounters configuration sections that do not have a corresponding entry in the <configSections> Element section. IgnoreSectionHandler provides a section handler for sections read by other systems to prevent configuration file parse exceptions. See the section handler definitions for the <system.runtime.remoting> Element in the Machine.config configuration file for examples of sections that specify IgnoreSectionHandler as the section handler.
