I'm using LaTeX and like to create an acknowledgement section using the report class such that is looks like the abstract and comes after it.

I went with:

\begin{abstract}
 This is cool paper about vuvuzelas.
\end{abstract}

\renewcommand{\abstractname}{Acknowledgements}
\begin{abstract}
 Thanks Mum!
\end{abstract}

This way both look similar and good.

Good answer. Better to make a new environment, though :-) –  Will Robertson Jul 31 '10 at 0:47
\section*{Acknowledgements}
Thanks Mum.

I was about to suggest that earlier then got called away from my computer. Some people (not I) would say that you should instead use \section*{Acknowledgments}. –  Mark Meckes Jul 30 '10 at 17:13

I bet the same people would also spell it "mom" instead. –  Will Robertson Jul 31 '10 at 0:47

I'd print it on aluminum foil. –  doncherry Oct 13 '11 at 21:14
