I have found that the example 1. below works best.

In the beginning/introduction of the document, spell out your conventions,
with examples.


Consider this: ALWAYS make the keyboard references BOLD and all CAPS.
The key references always standout in the document text.

This has worked well in the documentation that I have done while in an
(hardware/software) environment where the ultimate audience is 'unknown'.
And the
keyboard they (the user) use may be different than the one that I was using
during my documentation phase.
