The following typographic conventions are used in this book:
Code lines, commands, statements, variables , and any text you type or see onscreen appears in a mono typeface. Bold mono typeface is often used to represent the user 's input.
Placeholders in syntax descriptions appear in an italic mono typeface. Replace the placeholder with the actual filename, parameter, or whatever element it represents.
Italics highlight technical terms when they're being defined.
The icon is used before a line of code that is really a continuation of the preceding line. Sometimes a line of code is too long to fit as a single line on the page. If you see before a line of code, remember that it's part of the line immediately above it.
The book also contains Notes, Tips, and Cautions to help you spot important or useful information more quickly.
The notes include comments for experienced ASP users who are upgrading to ASP.NET. These notes are labeled "ASP Classic Note."
