# PrefacePreface

This guide will help you author a PreTeXt document. So it serves as a description of the PreTeXt XML vocabulary, along with the mechanics of creating the source and common output formats. Note that this is different than publishing your document, which is described in the PreTeXt Publisher's Guide. Even if you intend to distribute your document with an open license, and you are both author and publisher, it is still helpful and instructive to understand, and separate, the two different steps and roles.
