Typographic Conventions

To help you understand the material in the HST Data Handbook, we will use a few consistent typographic conventions.

Visual Cues

The following typographic cues are used:

Keystrokes

Keystroke commands and sequences are identified by the following formats.

Comments

Occasional side comments point out three types of information, each identified by an icon in the left margin.

Heads Up: Here is something that is often done incorrectly or that is not -obvious.


Warning: You could corrupt data, produce incorrect results, or create some other kind of severe problem.
