Manual conventions

We’ve tried to keep the number of elements and the types of formatting to a minimum in the manuals. We think this aids in clarity and makes the manuals more classically elegant looking. But there are some conventions and icons you should know about.

Convention/Icon Description
Italic text In conceptual text, indicates a new term or feature.
Bold text In unit summaries, indicates a key term or concept. In an independent practice activity, indicates an explicit item that you select, choose, or type.
Code font Indicates code or syntax.
Longer strings of ▸ code will look ▸ like this. 

In the hands-on activities, any code that’s too long to fit on a single line is divided into segments by one or more continuation characters (▸). This code should be entered as a continuous string of text.
Select bold item In the left column of hands-on activities, bold sans-serif text indicates an explicit item that you select, choose, or type.
Keycaps like e Indicate a key on the keyboard you must press.
