Dedication Section Style

A dedication page is used to express gratitude.

Dedication syntax

To use the dedication section style, the document type must be book. The dedication section must be a level 1 section (==), unless the book has parts.

[dedication]
== Dedication

For S.S.T.--

thank you for the plague of archetypes.

If the book has parts, the dedication section must be a level 0 section (=).

[dedication]
= Dedication

For S.S.T.--

thank you for the plague of archetypes.

Hide the section title

If you don’t want the section title to be displayed, use the untitled option. This option only works with the Docbook backend.

The section still needs a title in the source, otherwise you can’t assign the special section style to it or link to the section with a cross reference.

[dedication%untitled]
== Dedication

For S.S.T.--

thank you for the plague of archetypes.
