No one seems to be biting today, or perhaps only off-list. Courier makes me cringe due to it's ugliness.

My doucments are usually:
tahoma for commands and strings (all code), unless is a publisher protocol to use something like times or arial, which it is for certain publishers I've worked with.
tahoma for file names, but rarely do I ever use file names in doco
tahoma bold for menu selections separated by | as in File|Open
tahoma bold for keyboard, and menu
tahoma for dialog buttons or screen buttons but tahoma bold for dialog or screen name


I got out of Babylon, but there was no Zion. No Promised Land.

Dear Technical Writers:

I'm working on my team's document template. I'd like to know the font
size/style standards you've developed for:

Commands and strings.
File names.
Directory names.
Menu selections.
Keyboard, menu, and GUI buttons.

Right now, we don't have a standard, except that we put commands in a
Courier font, and everything else doesn't get a separate font style. I've
looked in my Chicago manual, and can't find a recommendation. So I'd like to
know what you're doing.

Thanks so much for your help!
