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


Chapter: Indicates the start of a new topic with a new title.


<chapter id=id>title
topic text ...

An end tag is not required.

If the topic title is long, you may want to provide an alternate abbreviated title using <abbrev>. The short title is used in the Index and History dialog boxes. If the title contains a graphical element, create an <abbrev> with the title text only.


Here are two markups that begin a new topic:

<chapter>A Manual of Style
<chapter id=DesktopTools>Desktop Tools
