An abstract is a concise overview of a document.
abstract block style can be placed on an open block or paragraph.
Here’s an example of the abstract block style set on a paragraph:
= Document Title [abstract] .Abstract Documentation is a distillation of many long adventures. == First Section
The abstract block style does not require the open block or paragraph to have a title, and it does not depend on a subsequent section to terminate it.
= Document Title [abstract] -- This article will take you on a wonderful adventure of knowledge. You'll start with the basics. Beyond that, where you go is up to you. -- Your journey begins here.
|To include a quote at the beginning of a chapter in a book, wrap a quote block inside an abstract block.|
There’s also an abstract section style.
