The start-tag is required for this element. The end-tag is optional, if your SGML declaration allows minimization.
A Colophon, if present, almost always occurs at the very end of a book. It contains factual information about the book, especially about its production, and includes details about typographic style, the fonts used, the paper used, and perhaps the binding method of the book.
Font geeks like Norm think every book should have one.
These elements contain Colophon: Book.
The following elements occur in Colophon: BlockQuote, CalloutList, Caution, FormalPara, GlossList, Important, 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 Colophon.
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).
