Constant Width Italic is used for:

  • Method and function parameter or assigned value placeholders that indicate an item is to be replaced by a real value in actual use

Throughout Part II, compatibility tables accompany most entries. A number shown for an item indicates the version of the designated browser or web standard in which the term was first introduced.

If an item is not supported by a browser or standard as the book went to press, it is assigned the value "n/a".
