Bold and Italics

  • Use bold for anything you read on either the screen or keyboard (e.g. ‚Äúpress Alt-Shift-N", "click File > New", "the Layers panel").
  • Use <code> for code keywords and anything you type in (e.g. "set the colour code to #2886c8", "use a for-each loop", "give it a name of confirm_button").
  • Use italics for adding emphasis to actual text ("whatever you do, do not click the Delete button").
  • One exception is that it's OK to use bold for emphasis within lists, for article-type posts.
