+  Org mode is a variant of Outline mode for using Emacs as an
+organizer and/or authoring system.  Files with names ending in the
+extension @file{.org} are opened in Org mode (@pxref{Choosing Modes}).
+To explicitly switch to Org mode, type @kbd{M-x org-mode}.
+  In Org mode, as in Outline mode, each entry has a heading line that
+starts with one or more @samp{*} characters.  @xref{Outline Format}.
+In addition, any line that begins with the @samp{#} character is
+treated as a comment.
address@hidden TAB @r{(Org Mode)}
address@hidden org-cycle
+  Org mode provides commands for easily viewing and manipulating the
+outline structure.  The simplest of these commands is @key{TAB}
+(@code{org-cycle}).  If invoked on a heading line, it cycles through
+the different visibility states of the subtree: (i) showing only that
+heading line, (ii) showing only the heading line and the heading lines
+of its direct children, if any, and (iii) showing the entire subtree.
+If invoked in a body line, the global binding for @key{TAB} is
address@hidden S-TAB @r{(Org Mode)}
address@hidden org-shifttab
+  Typing @key{S-TAB} (@code{org-shifttab}) anywhere in an Org mode
+buffer cycles the visibility of the entire outline structure, between
+(i) showing only top-level heading lines, (ii) showing all heading
+lines but no body lines, and (iii) showing everything.

-Org mode extends Outline mode to turn Emacs into an organizer and an
-authoring system.
-When editing a file ending with the @file{.org} extension, Emacs
-automatically uses @code{org-mode} as the major mode.  In this mode,
-headlines start with one (or more) leading star(s) and comments start
-with the @code{#} character at the beginning of a line.
-* This is the first headline
-** This is a first sub-headline
-* This is the second headline
-Some content here.
-# Some comment here.
address@hidden example
-From here, you can use Org mode as a simple outliner: @key{TAB} on a
-headline will cycle through the various folding states of a subtree,
-and @key{S-TAB} anywhere in the buffer will (un)fold the whole
-You can also manipulate the structure of your document by moving a
-headline up and down with @key{M-<up>} and @key{M-<down>}, or by
-promoting and demoting a headline with @key{M-<left>} and
address@hidden<left>}.  If you want to act on the whole subtree (i.e. the
-headline and its content, including other headlines), simply add the
address@hidden key and use @key{S-M-<up>}, @key{S-M-<down>},
address@hidden<left>} and @key{S-M-<right>}.
-For further details, see @ref{Document Structure,,,org, The Org Manual}.
address@hidden org-metaup
address@hidden org-metadown
address@hidden org-metaleft
address@hidden org-metaright
+  You can move an entire entry up or down in the buffer, including its
+body lines and subtree (if any), by typing @kbd{M-<up>}
+(@code{org-metaup}) or @kbd{M-<down>} (@code{org-metadown}) on the
+heading line.  Similarly, you can promote or demote a heading line
+with @kbd{M-<left>} (@code{org-metaleft}) and @kbd{M-<left>}
+(@code{org-metaright}).  These commands execute their global bindings
+if invoked on a body line.
+  The following subsections give basic instructions for using Org mode
+as an organizer and as an authoring system.  @xref{Top,The Org Mode
+Manual,,org, The Org Manual}, for details.
-* Org as an organizer::         Manage TODO lists and agendas

+  You can tag an Org entry as a @dfn{TODO} item by typing @kbd{C-c
+C-t} (@code{org-todo}) anywhere in the entry.  This adds the keyword
address@hidden to the heading line.  Typing @kbd{C-c C-t} again switches

+for a date by popping up the Emacs Calendar (@pxref{Calendar/Diary}),
+and then adds the tag @samp{SCHEDULED}, together with the selected

+(@code{org-agenda-file-to-front}).  Org mode is designed to let you
+easily maintain multiple agenda files, e.g.@: for organizing different
+aspects of your life.  The list of agenda files is stored in the
+variable @code{org-agenda-files}.
