<!-- This ought to be more about how to use the wiki markup than about style guidelines. -->
===Objective===
+
<!-- Until further work is done on this page, the style guidelines is a reasonable start. -->
The purpose of defining how pages on the wiki should be written, is to help maintain consistency by having a set guideline, and to enable easier translations of the site into other languages. Since this page is easily accessible below the edit box, it (currently) contains more details of style than actual edit instruction.

__NOTOC__
 +
__NOEDITSECTION__
 +
This page will have future additions and revisions to cover most topics that editors may encounter.
  
===Typographic Conventions===
+
== Local information ==
 +
* The [[PC-BSD{{RM}} Wiki:Template QuickRef]] gives a syntax overview of many templates likely to be found or used on any wiki page.
  
The PC-BSD Handbook uses the following typographic conventions:
+
* Our [[PC-BSD{{RM}} Wiki:Style Guidelines]] is a detailed prescription for how the wiki pages ought to be developed.
  
:'''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.
+
== Other handy info ==
  
:''italic text:'' used to represent device names or file name paths.
+
==== Special Characters ====
  
:''' ''bold italic text:'' ''' used to emphasize an important point.
+
{| cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="left" style="margin-left:auto; margin-right:auto; margin-top:5px; margin-bottom:15px; border-collapse: collapse;"
 
+
===Language usage and word choice===
+
 
+
To facilitate future translations avoid the following:
+
 
+
;Contractions
+
:in place of '''''don't''''', '''''can't''''' or '''''won't''''' use '''do not''', '''cannot''', or '''will not'''.
+
 
+
;Avoid brand names
+
:use '''web''' ''search'' instead of '''''Google''' search''
+
 
+
===Special Characters===
+
;Traversal of menus/windows
+
:use an arrow (➜) as in the example: PC-BSD control panel ➜ System manager ➜ System packages {tab}
+
