Common Desktop Environment: Help System Author's and Programmer's Guide

### Syntax

```<helpvolume>
<metainfo>
<title>volume title
<abstract>      brief description of help volume
.
.
.
<\metainfo>
<hometopic> ...
.
.

The meta information section is optional, but it is typically included in a help volume. Although optional, the title, copyright, and abstract subsections provide useful information about your help volume and are recommended.

If you include any of these subsections, the meta information section is required.

The <otherfront> element can be used to define subsections other than the predefined title, copyright, and abstract subsections.

The <\metainfo> end tag is required.
