Conventions Used in This Book

We use the following font and format conventions:


Used for new terms where first defined, Registry values, domain names , filenames, and command lines when they appear in the body of a paragraph exactly as a user would type them (for example: run dir to list the files in a directory). Italic is also used for Windows commands when they are mentioned in passing and not as part of a command line (for example: to find more information on nslookup , a user could consult the Windows help system).


Used for menu names and for text appearing in windows and dialog boxes, such as names of fields, buttons , and menu options. For example: enter a domain name in the Server name field and then click the OK button.

Constant width

Used for excerpts from scripts or configuration files. For example, a snippet of Perl:

 if ( -x /winnt/system32/dns.exe ) {     system( /winnt/system32/dns.exe ); } 

Sample interactive sessions showing command-line input and corresponding output are also shown in a constant width font, with user-supplied input in constant width bold :

 C\>  more <\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts  # Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp. # # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows. # 

Indicates a tip, suggestion, or general note.

Indicates a warning or caution.
