produces no errors, as expected. However, changing the first line to
Pro Git Jon
and running the same command produces
asciidoctor: WARNING: jon.asc: line 6: invalid style for paragraph: preface
Of course, there's no line 6 in jon.asc.
This is obviously a contrived example. However, when I run the same command on a full book, which includes
a bunch of chapters, I get an error message, e.g. "asciidoctor: ERROR: book/03-git-branching/sections/basic-branching-and-merging.asc: line 335: only book doctypes can contain level 0 sections"
Why does adding words to the first line cause errors when nothing else changes?
Not sure about the line 6 error, but while the original example does no produce errors, it does not produce a correct output neither.
In v 126.96.36.199 and 1.5.8 the preface section is processed as part of the author and revision data.
Adding more text makes the confuses de parser in a bad manner.

I'm no expert either, but I do know that running asciidoctor on
https://github.com/progit/progit2 works fine until you change the
line I showed. This problem is preventing me from (slightly) changing
the title of that book.
Abel correctly pointed out that the title text and the underline must be the same length.
Usually, I would advocate for changing it to an ATX (single-line) section heading as Abel suggested. But I think there is a good reason why this book uses the underline style. That's an implicit way to enable compatibility mode. If that's the case, then you don't want to change anyway it as it could break other syntax.
Just make sure the two lines are the same length and you'll be all good!

That was the cause of the problem!! Thanks for pointing this

I'm taking the existing book and making changes to the text. I'm
not planning on making any changes to the Asciidoc constructs since
I don't really know what I'm doing.

That's probably a good idea but I want to track the original book
as closely as possible so I'm not going to do that. If I were
starting from scratch though, I'd definitely do that.
Thanks again for solving my problem.

Yep. I never would have guessed. I made the change and everything
is working fine now.

Absolutely, and the last thing I wanted to do was to get involved with
