+    won't fail.  This target was added because rendering the full book into HTML
+    or PDF can take some time.  The most common cause of rendering failures is
+    because of invalid XML, hence this target was added as a time-saving
+    measure. Secondly, <command>make</command> will render the HTML output.
+    Finally, <command>make <option>pdf</option></command> will render the PDF
+    output.
