Text based document generation

Example Dedication

Optional dedication.

This document is an AsciiDoc book skeleton containing briefly annotated example elements plus a couple of example index entries and footnotes.

Books are normally used to generate DocBook markup and the titles of the preface, appendix, bibliography, glossary and index sections are significant (specialsections).

Example Preface

Optional preface.

Preface Sub-section

Preface sub-section body.

The First Chapter

Chapters can contain sub-sections nested up to three deep.

Chapters can have their own bibliography, glossary and index.

And now for something completely different: monkeys, lions and tigers (Bengal and Siberian) using the alternative syntax index entries. Note that multi-entry terms generate separate index entries.

Here are a couple of image examples: an images/smallnew.png example inline image followed by an example block image:
