Preface > Conventions Used in This Book

Conventions Used in This Book

The following typographical conventions are used in this book:

  • Web pages and Web sites that we reference are set in blue text.

  • Pattern names are identified as follows:

    PATTERN NAME (A2)

    where the letter in parentheses represents the pattern group and the number is the pattern number. In this case “A2” means the second pattern in pattern group A. Each use of a pattern in the text is also accompanied by a color-coded, circular icon in the margin (as illustrated to the right of the pattern name example above). The color indicates the pattern group. These icons are also shown on each page of the respective pattern.

  • Chapter and pattern group names are also represented in the book by color-coded icons. The first five chapters use square icons with the chapter number inside the square, and the pattern groups use diamond-shaped icons with the group letter inside the diamond. For example, in the margin here are the icons associated with Chapter 1 and Pattern Group C, respectively. Throughout the book, such icons are shown in the margin of the text wherever a specific chapter or pattern group is mentioned.

  • HTML tags and code examples are set in constant-width type.
