Description

Some documents, usually legacy documents, use headings that are not tied to the normal sectional hieararchy. These headings may be represented in DocBook with the BridgeHead element.

BridgeHeads may also be useful in fiction or journalistic works that don't have a nested hierarchy.

Processing expectations

A BridgeHead is formatted as a block, using the same display properties as the section heading which it masquerades as. The RenderAs attribute controls which heading it mimics.

(4.0) Future Changes

The InterfaceDefinition element will be discarded in DocBook V4.0. It will no longer be available in the content model of this element.
