There is much free information on the internet about how to use plain text AsciiDoc and apps like AsciiDoctor to render it to other formats like PDF, HTML, and eBooks. Much of free information on the internet about AsciiDoctor was written by Dan Allen and I am grateful for his efforts. You are welcome to use these other materials. This book represents my learning from these sources and stumbling to solutions for things.

Many sites in the community presume you are a software developer. This means they sometimes inadvertently leave out much how-to information because they presume that software developers already know how to do the particular task.

My audience is writers who are not software developers. This includes nonfiction writers and technical writers. They may have some exposure to software concepts and practices, but if not I will walk them through the step-by-step actions needed so they don’t have to stumble around to learn as I did.

Let me know if I accidentally did the same thing to you. If there are erroneous assumptions, please let me know and I’ll fix them.
