5.3. abstract Filter
The general syntax is:
!block abstract ... !endblock
See Understanding Filter Interfaces, if necessary.
The abstract filter is used to specify an abstract for a technical paper. This typically implies:
- for PostScript, the text is italics and indented from both margins
- for HTML, the text is given an appropriate heading.
A typical paper starts like this:
!init OPT_STYLE="paper" !define DOC_NAME "Internet Management Tools" !define DOC_AUTHOR "I. M. Wise" !build_title !block abstract The internet is out of control. This paper ... # more paragraphs go here !endblock H1: Introduction # The interesting stuff goes here
