Hi Melinda:

I have written for both hardware and software applications.

In software applications, I use bold to indicate the Menu command or dialog box
field a user needs to select and bold-italic to indicate an application
command, procedural function, or dialog box field information a user needs to
enter.
I use plain italic to indicate procedural function names.
