An abstract is not a review, nor does it evaluate the work being abstracted. Abstracts allow readers who may be interested in a longer work to quickly decide whether it is worth their time to read it.
If you find any problems in the documentation, please report them to us in writing.
Render X does not warrant that this document is error-free.
While it contains key words found in the larger work, the abstract is an original document rather than an excerpted passage. Also, many online databases use abstracts to index larger works.
Therefore, abstracts should contain keywords and phrases that allow for easy searching.
