The PreTeXt Guide

Chapter 6 PreTeXt Vocabulary Specification

This Guide, along with the sample article and sample book distributed with the PreTeXt source, provide a wealth of examples of how to author in PreTeXt. However, at some point, you will undoubtedly encounter a situation where some of your text fails to appear in your output or the PreTeXt-CLI produces an error. Those are good moments to start investigating the formal specifications of the PreTeXt vocabulary, as most likely you tried to use something in a way incompatible with those specifications. This chapter will help you understand, and work with, the formal specification of PreTeXt.
