        <section name="About This Demo">
            <p>
                This is a quick demo that shows how to use attributes together with 
                Maven. Don't worry about 90% here seemingly being pure unexplainable
                magic - the purpose of this part of the tutorial is to show you
                what steps you must do to make the Commons Attributes package work.
                In the reference we'll focus more on just what happens, and how
                the all features work.

        <section name="Project Setup">
                
                <p>
                    In order to get attributes working in your project you need to do three things:
                    (1) declare dependencies, (2) install the commons-attributes plugin and (3) set project
                    properties that will enable the plugin for your project.
                </p>
                
                <subsection name="Declaring Dependencies">
                    <p>
                        Dependencies are declared as you would expect in your project.xml:
                    </p>
                    <source>
    <groupId>commons-attributes
    <artifactId>commons-attributes-api
    <version>2.2
</dependency>

<dependency>
    <groupId>commons-attributes
    <artifactId>commons-attributes-compiler
    <version>2.2
</dependency>]]>
                </subsection>
                
                <subsection name="Installing the Plugin">
                    <p>
                        You can install the plugin by checking out the sources and doing:
                    </p>
                    
                    <source>
                    
                    <p>
                        Alternatively, you can download the plugin and put it in your Maven
                        plugin directory.
                    </p>
                </subsection>
                
                <subsection name="Project Properties">
                    
                    <p>Since Maven will unconditionally apply all plugins to every project being compiled
                        it is neccessary to explicitly enable the attribute compiler and/or indexer. This
                        is simply to keep them from being run on projects that do not want anything to do 
                        with Commons-Attributes. The compiler and/or indexer are enabled by two project 
                        properties that you can set in your project.properties file or in your maven.xml 
                        file:
                    </p>
                    
                    <source>
                    
                    <p>
                        The first property will enable the attribute precompilation step. The second will
                        enable the attribute indexing step that takes place after the jar:jar target.
                        Both properties can be set independently of each other, although it makes little
                        sense to enable indexing if compilation isn't enables as well.
                    </p>

            <section name="Running the Demo">
                
                <p>
                    You should be able to unzip the demo files, cd into the directory and execute
                    "maven run", like this:
                </p>
                
                <source>
            </section>
