Bands are identified by a colon (':') after the opening << characters.
Example for header bands:
This starts a group header or, if used outside of any group a document header text. In the latter case the following variations are possible:
HEADERF = header on first page only
HEADERO = header on odd pages
HEADERE = header on even pages
HEADER_OFF = this header is disabled.
Please note that bands are not implemented using opening and closing tokens ("i.e. <<..>>...<</...>>") so optionally the closing '/' character can be typed: <<:HEADER/>>
Example for footer bands:
This starts a group footer or, if used outside of any group a document footer text. In the latter case the following variations are possible:
FOOTERF = footer on first page only
FOOTERO = footer on odd pages
FOOTERE = footer on even pages
FOOTER_OFF = this footer is disabled.
Inside header and footer bands fields, images and text is possible. A header and footer band ends where either a different header or footer band starts or a data band:
Bands must be the first non white space (white space= space or tab characters) in a paragraph. All text after the band token will be ignored and can be used to write comments.
