Re: David McMurrey's January 21st question about quotation marks (or lack
thereof) in chapter and section references:

We omit quotation marks an use bold in something like:

see Chapter 2 - Setting Up Your System

I don't think that there's any style guide that mandates it, and I certainly
wouldn't use it for anything academic or literary, but for a user manual,
especially on a complex technical product, there's a case to be made for
keeping it as clean and spare as possible. This (perhaps) allows the reader to
better focus on the content the manual.
