Handling in-text keywords

I've seen a lot of different usage on when to use Italic, Bold, I+B and also <tt>. The main reason is for distinguishing different symbols in blocktexts. The question is, when should we use italic, bold, both or <tt> tag?

I'll just set some examples:

From Editing How to Use QPushButton

  • An instance of QPushButton is created. Signal released() is connected to slot handleButton() which changes the text and the size of the button.

From QtWhitepaper (pretty much edited by myself)

  • Qt applications can be built visually using Qt Designer, a flexible user interface builder with support for IDE integration.
  • This snippet will show the message- "Ready" on status bar. You can set property statusHint in any widget.
  • The QAction class encapsulates this concept. It allows programmers to define an action in one place.

Selfreferred articles

A lot of articles are written in a subjective manner. Should these articles be rewritten for a neutral stand? There are no authors left within the wiki-context, which kind of makes the 'I did find' or 'I always asked myself' and similar idiom kind of surreal.

Code Blocks

Currently, <code> blocks are used. <code> is meant for single line code snippets and should be embedded within a <pre> tag for multi line code blocks[1]. The result is as follows:

<code>
#include <something.h>

int main()
{
    return 0;
}
</code>

As can be seen, the <code> tags are shown, but the text is formatted over multiple lines.

However, using <syntaxhighlight lang="cpp"> will cause the text to be formatted and colored. The result is as follows:

#include <something.h>

int main()
{
    return 0;
}

This section may be relevant to Handling in-text keywords as the examples where <tt> are used should possibly be switched to <code> based on their needs.
