Style Guide for the Wenlin User's Guide

Menu items are bold. (Book has bold italic but that's inconvenient for the wiki version and might not look good on screen.) Example: "choose Open from the File menu". Capitalize words after the first word in a menu command (except little words like "in" or "by"); for example Reveal Codes In This Window (not Reveal codes in this window).

Text that represents what Wenlin displays on the screen is generally bold. (Examples: "The title will say Editing"; "the #r notation".) Exception: when a whole line or paragraph is shown, it is indented (with ":") and is not bold. Another exception: button labels (as in dialog boxes and the stroking box) are not bold ("OK", "Cancel").

Bold is used for: pinyin, menu items, text that is displayed on the screen. In rare cases it is used for headers instead of the wiki "==header==" notation. Bold is generally not used for emphasis or for any other purpose.

Emphasis can be shown with italics. Example: "An ordinary dictionary would only list words that start with a given character."

New terms being defined for the first time, or the first time in a particular context with a particular meaning, may be in italics. (This is intended as a clue to the reader that they are not expected already to know what the word is supposed to mean in the context.)

Keystrokes are capitalized, not bold, not italic. "Return", "Enter". Generally use the word "key" to make it clear we're talking about a key rather than a button, etc. "Press the Delete key" (not "Press Delete" or "Hit Delete"). Exception: "Press the space bar" (not "the Space Bar key"). The symbol "+" is used for key combinations: "Ctrl+E" (not "ctl-e").

Proper nouns are capitalized: "Wenlin", "ABC". "Grabber" is capitalized. "Guide", "Appendix A", "Section 3.4" are capitalized. None of these are in italics or bold.

Whether to use italics for names of books, software programs, etc., is an open question. However, as a rule, don't use italics for "Wenlin", "Wenlin version 4.0", "ABC", "ABC Chinese-English Comprehensive Dictionary", "Wenlin User's Guide", "Guide", "Appendix", etc. That would be too much italics.

For button labels ("OK", "Cancel"), do not use bold or italics.

Tools are lowercase, not bold, not italic (except when first being defined): "hand tool"; "brush tool". (Exception: "I-beam" is capitalized.)

Features such as "toolbar", "stroking box" and "flexible flashcards" are not capitalized. (Exception: "the Grabber".) They are not normally bold or italic.

Cídiǎn and Zìdiǎn are capitalized (this is a change from the book), and bold (since pinyin).

Tutorial-style instructions to the user follow this example:

• Press the down arrow key on your keyboard once
The insertion point moves down to the next line
• Press the down arrow key repeatedly (or just hold it down)
The insertion point keeps moving down; when the insertion point reaches past the bottom line displayed in the window, the window starts to scroll, until you stop

There are no periods at the end of any of the indented lines. If such a line contains more than one sentence, however, periods may be used.

Not all instructions to the user should use the tutorial-style indentation. For example, this sentence, "To input any character when you know its Unicode number, you can type the number followed by the symbol #, then convert it." should not be changed to use the tutorial-style indentation.

File/folder names should be enclosed in double quotation marks. (This had not been settled in earlier versions.)

How to type curly quotes in Safari:

Open double quotes: option left-bracket
Close double quotes: option shift left-bracket
Open single quote: option right-bracket
Close single quote: option shift right-bracket

Template:Key_press

Suppress auto section numbers
