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: 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.
