A Dedication is a section at the very beginning of a book (before any other body matter) containing a tribute to something (frequently someone) in connection with the writing or publication of the Book.
Formatted as a displayed block. Frequently appears on a page by itself at the beginning of a book.
These elements contain dedication: book.
The following elements occur in dedication: beginpage, blockquote, calloutlist, caution, formalpara, glosslist, important, indexterm, itemizedlist, literallayout, note, orderedlist, para, programlisting, programlistingco, screen, screenco, screenshot, segmentedlist, simpara, simplelist, subtitle, tip, title, titleabbrev, variablelist, warning.
Status identifies the editorial or publication status of the Dedication.
Publication status might be used to control formatting (for example, printing a “draft” watermark on drafts) or processing (perhaps a document with a status of “final” should not include any components that are not final).
For examples, see book.
