Help:Editing

Typographic Conventions

The PC-BSD Handbook uses the following typographic conventions:

bold text: represents a command written at the command line. In usage examples, the font is changed with any command output displayed in unbolded text.
italic text: used to represent device names or file name paths.
bold italic text: used to emphasize an important point.

Language usage and word choice

To facilitate future translations avoid the following:

  • Contractions- for example, in place of don't or can't or won't use do not, cannot, or will not.
  • Function instead of service name- use "web search" instead of "Google search"

Some special characters

This is a helpful spot to facilitate a copy/paste of these unique characters:

Personal tools
Namespaces

Variants
