I would like a list of generic things in printed material (particularly educational material). I know about the regular types of bits: foreword, preface, tables, figures, plates, glossary, references, dot points, chapter, appendix, headers, footers, page numbers, table of contents; but I would like as big a list as possible (with links to images, if you feel like it of visual identifiers) of other types of repeat things in books, textbooks, reports, education activity books for children- basically any kind of printed material (even if it's supplied electronically).

These two areas intersect and you needn't break it up for me. Feel free to provide text answer, links to websites about booky-type bits, and to online books with interesting bits. If you provide book suggestions (about books), I'm sure they will be helpful to someone, but I don't have the time to source them just now, so I'm particularly after weblinks.
