# General template problem

I need to achieve the following formatting. Is that possible?

Can someone provide an example?

This depends on the document class you are using, but most classes that support chapters have the commands \frontmatter, \mainmatter and \backmatter, which support this sort of thing automatically. For help on how to format the contents list itself, you should look at the tocloft package, or check the tag on the site for examples of its use.

\documentclass{book}
\begin{document}
\frontmatter
\chapter{Disclaimer}
It's not my fault.
\chapter{Acknowledgements}
\chapter{Abstract}
A short summary
\tableofcontents
\mainmatter
\chapter*{Introduction}

• Thanks a lot guys. I already found a different solution. If you want I can post mine as well but yours is much cleaner. – salamis Sep 6 '11 at 1:28
