This guide uses uniform resource locators (URLs) of the following form:
In these URLs, server represents the name of the server on which you run your application, such as
www; domain represents your Internet domain name, such as
uiuc.edu; path represents the directory structure on the server; and file
.html represents an individual file name. In general, items in italics in URLs are placeholders and items in normal monospace font are literals. If your server has Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) enabled, you would use
https instead of
http in the URL.
This guide uses the following font conventions:
The monospace fontis used for sample code and code listings, API and language elements (such as method names and property names), file names, path names, directory names, HTML tags, and any text that must be typed on the screen. (
Monospace italic fontis used for placeholders embedded in code.)
- Italic type is used for book titles, emphasis, variables and placeholders, and words used in the literal sense.
- Boldface type is used for glossary terms.
