3.1 Document conventions ToC Previous Next

Throughout this document and the referenced other Parts of the series, certain document conventions are used.

Italics are used to denote a defined term or definition that appears in the “Terms and definition” clause in one of the Parts of the series.

Italics are also used to denote the name of a service input or output parameter or the name of a structure or element of a structure that are usually defined in tables.

The italicized terms and names are also often written in camel-case (the practice of writing compound words or phrases in which the elements are joined without spaces, with each element’s initial letter capitalized within the compound). For example the defined term is AddressSpace instead of Address Space. This makes it easier to understand that there is a single definition for AddressSpace, not separate definitions for Address and Space.
