0.4. Conventions Used in This Book

This book uses the following typographic conventions:

A constant width font is used for:

  • Anything that might appear in a Java program, including keywords, operators, datatypes, method names, variable names, class names, and interface names

  • Command lines and options that should be typed verbatim on the screen (bold is used in Appendix D, "RMI Quick Reference" to highlight reference items).

  • Tags that might appear in an HTML document

An italic font is used for:

  • New terms where they are defined

  • Pathnames, filenames, and program names (however, if the program name is also the name of a Java class, it is given in constant width, like other class names)

  • Internet addresses, such as domain names and URLs
