Error Messages

When documenting error messages, follow these guidelines:

  • Reproduce the exact message text.

    Use monospace font for the error message text.

  • Format error messages in a way that differs from paragraph text.

  • Always follow an error message with text describing why the message is displayed and what a reader can do to correct the problem.

  • If you are documenting numerous error messages, consider compiling them into an appendix or even into a separate book.
