Conventions Used in This Book

By conventions, we simply mean a set of rules we've employed in this book to present information to you consistently. When you see a term italicized, look for its definition, which we've included so that you know what things mean in the context of Web site construction. Sometimes, we give you information to enter on‐screen; in this case, we've bolded what you need to type. We've placed Web site addresses and e‐mail addresses in monofont so that they stand out from regular text. Code appears in its own font, set off from the rest of the text, like this:

Never mind the furthermore, the plea is self‐defense.

When we present complex information with copious amounts of code, we present examples and then dissect the code. Blocks of code are neatly bundled into a listing, which looks like this:

					Everything you wanted to know about code, but were afraid to ask.
					

Throughout the book, you'll find icons such as Tips, Warnings, and Remember. These little tidbits are cold, hard facts we found out the hard way. We sprinkle this information liberally so you won't fall into the same chuckholes we did, or worse, end up with egg on your face.
