We are currently engaged in a discussion at Sun about
whether to put boxes around code examples or screen input/
output listings. Opinions vary as to whether programmers
or system administrators like or expect boxes, or
whether just using an alternate font and indenting
is enough of an indicator.

Could you write and let me know how your company
treats these items and how you distinguish them
from surrounding text?

I'll summarize to the list.

In this world, it rains on the Just and the Unjust...
but the Unjust have the Just's umbrella.
