Section styles for articles and books

AsciiDoc provides built-in styles, commonly referred to as special sections for front matter, book parts, and back matter sections found in journal articles, academic papers, and books. These special section styles are:

  • Dedication

  • Acknowledgments

  • Abstract

  • Preface

  • Part

  • Appendix

  • Glossary

  • Bibliography

  • Index

  • Colophon

The document type, article or book, determines which section styles are available for use.
