Documentation Conventions

In Novell documentation, a greater-than symbol (>) is used to separate actions within a step and items in a cross-reference path. The > symbol is also used to connect consecutive links in an element tree structure where you can either click a plus symbol (+) or double-click the elements to expand them.

A trademark symbol (®, ™, etc.) denotes a Novell trademark. An asterisk (*) denotes a third-party trademark.

When a single path name can be written with a backslash for some platforms or a forward slash for other platforms, the path name is presented with a forward slash to preserve case considerations in the UNIX* or Linux* operating systems.
