This is the optional preamble (an untitled section body). Useful for writing simple sectionless documents consisting only of a preamble.

The abstract, preface, appendix, bibliography, glossary and index section titles are significant ('specialsections').
Example Abstract
The optional abstract (one or more paragraphs) goes here.

This document is an AsciiDoc article skeleton containing briefly
annotated element placeholders plus a couple of example index entries
and footnotes.


The First Section
Article sections start at level 1 and can be nested up to four levels
footnote:[An example footnote.]
indexterm:[Example index entry]


And now for something completely different: ((monkeys)), lions and
tigers (Bengal and Siberian) using the alternative syntax index
(((Big cats,Lions)))
(((Big cats,Tigers,Bengal Tiger)))
(((Big cats,Tigers,Siberian Tiger)))
Note that multi-entry terms generate separate index entries.

Here are a couple of image examples: an image:images/smallnew.png[]

Followed by an example table:
