Hi, Dann. We call it "backmatter" as well; guess I've been lucky that
my staff hasn't had a problem with the abbreviation. ;) They focused
more on "FM" (frontmatter) and complained that we can't get radio
reception in our cave of a conversion facility...

Subject: [Athen] What to call Back Matter

Hello all,

We are playing around with our digital book production and know that the
term "Back matter" is typically used to denote the appendices,
bibliographies, etc.

I am wondering if there is more standardized term or should we just keep
using "Back matter"?

Unfortunately, "BM" draws goggles from my staff.
