Document ConventionsThe following document conventions are used throughout this book.
||Bold letters indicate a specific term or punctuation mark intended to be used
literally: language functions or keywords (such as DrawPenDataEx or switch), MS-DOSŪ commands, and command-line options. You must type these terms and punctuation
marks exactly as shown. The use of uppercase or lowercase letters is usually,
but not always, significant. For example, you can invoke the C compiler by
typing either CL, cl, or Cl at the MS-DOS prompt.
||In syntax statements, parentheses enclose one or more parameters that you pass
to a function.
||Italic text indicates a placeholder; you are expected to provide an actual
value. For example, in the following syntax the placeholder lpszRecogName represents a pointer to the filename of a recognizer:
InstallRecognizer( lpszRecogName );
New terms pertaining to pen-based computing also appear in italics where they are first introduced or defined in the text. Such terms are also listed in the glossary.
||Code examples are displayed in a nonproportional typeface.
|A vertical ellipsis in a program example indicates that a portion of the
program has been omitted.

||A horizontal ellipsis following an item indicates that more items having the
same form may appear.

||Braces indicate that you must specify one of the enclosed items.
