We want this book to be as clear and easy to use as possible, so we've introduced a number of layout styles that we've used throughout ”you've probably already noticed a few of them in this chapter:
Instructions in exercises appear as numbered steps.
Different styles emphasize things that appear on the screen.
Hyperlinks appear in the following format: www.friendsofed.com .
Code appears in this style , and any new code or code that we want to emphasize appears like this . You'll also see input information and element names in the same style .
Keyboard shortcuts appear as follows : CTRL/CMD+S indicates that PC users should press the CTRL (Control) key and the S key at the same time, while Mac users the ˜ (Command) key and S key. We've attempted to cater to both PC and Mac users throughout.
New, important terms appear in bold.
If a page isn't wide enough to display a long line of code, we have employed a code continuation symbol ( ). Where you see this, it means the code should all be on the same line.
Menu selections are indicated as follows: Text > Style > Bold (see the following screen shot).
