about the document and if desired additional processing instructions (such an
instruction to automatically number headings from a particular level down)
-.BR

characteristic is the markup of different heading levels, which define the
primary outline of the document structure. Markup of substantive text includes:

-.BR

* text basic attributes, italics, bold etc.
-.BR
