Chapter headings and subheadings

The simple $ tag is used to indicate headings, sub headings, section headings etc.

How it works

Add the appropriate $ tag before the text. A single $ means a level one heading, $$ means level two, $$$ means level three etc. The range goes to level six i.e. $$$$$$.

$ Chapter Heading
$$ Sub heading
$$$ Section heading
$$$$ Sub section header
$$$$$ Sub-sub section header
$$$$$$ No idea what you’d use this level for

The book reader software will pick up the $ tags and create the right level of heading.

Note: UBooks work a lot like websites; the bigger the number, the smaller the text. A level 1 heading is big, and should be used for Big Things like chapter headings. A level 6 heading is tiny. It is suggested you use them consistently.

Mix ’em up

They can be used in any order and mixed up. For example, many print books declare the chapter sequence in smallish text (e.g. Chapter IV) and below it render the actual chapter name in bigger text. This is easy to accomplish in a UBook.

$$ CHAPTER IV
$ The Road to Nowhere

This would look something like this.

CHAPTER IV

The Road to Nowhere

Note: The use of any of the headers automatically renders the next paragraph as a start paragraph. These would typically be rendered flushed to the left without an indent as with print books.
