Can anyone make any recommendations on using font type to differentiate
required and optional code in a code example?
I want a programmer to be able to glance at it and be able to tell which is
required and which is optional. As this will be both
online and hard copy, no color is used.
Is there an industry standard for code examples programmers are familiar
I am using these 2 to differentiate:
Verdana, 12, Italic
Courier New 13 (greater kerning)
Any suggestions appreciated. I want my guide easy as pie to use.
