I am new to FrameMaker, and I don't know its capabilities thoroughly.

I'd like to place sample code in a tutorial text for a programming language,
and I want the code to look as "literate" (a la Knuth) as possible.

I wonder whether it is possible to do the following automatically:

- format certain words (i.e. reserved words of the programming language) as
bold: this means those reserved words need be fed to FM.

- format all non-reserved words and non-operator symbols as italic: again,
the operator symbols must be defined beforehand.

- replace certain operators with certain variants in the typeface that
appear more legible - e.g. a minus sign ['-'; ANSI 45] with em dash ['-';
ANSI 151]: this too requires a mapping table.

Does FrameMaker have a mechanism/tools for this?

Thanks for reading.
