UxOra articles use several writing conventions to highlight certain parts or to draw attention to specific information.

I hope theses conventions will make articles more readable.

Unix command line

# This is a Unix shell comment
# The following will show an unix command and its output.

$ echo "this is a unix cmd line test"

<<--OUTPUT--

--OUTPUT--

Notes and Warnings

Note
A note is a tip or shortcut or alternative approach to the task at hand. Ignoring a note should have no negative consequences, but you might miss out on a trick that makes your life easier.

Important
Important boxes detail things that are easily missed. Ignoring important boxes won''t cause data loss but may cause irritation and frustration.

Warning
A Warning should not be ignored. Ignoring warnings will most likely cause data loss.
