2.3. Guide Formatting
Certain words are represented in different fonts, styles, and weights. Different character formatting is used to indicate the function or purpose of the phrase being highlighted.
Monospace is used for commands, package names, files and directory paths, and any text displayed in a prompt.
This type of formatting is used for anything entered or returned in a command prompt.
Any text which is italicized is a variable, such as instance_name or hostname. Occasionally, this is also used to emphasize a new term or other phrase.
Most phrases which are in bold are application names, such as Cygwin, or are fields or options in a user interface, such as a User Name Here: field or Save button.
Other formatting styles draw attention to important text.
A note provides additional information that can help illustrate the behavior of the system or provide more detail for a specific issue.
Important information is necessary, but possibly unexpected, such as a configuration change that will not persist after a reboot.
A warning indicates potential data loss, as may happen when tuning hardware for maximum performance.
