Description Christopher Yeleighton 2014-07-17 16:03:35 UTC
Description of problem:

Mono-spaced text cannot be Italic.  Only proportional serif fonts have italic variants.  Proportional font used by the manual is sans-serif.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
  1. Read the section "⁠1.1. Typographic Conventions" 

Actual results:
  1. 

Whether mono-spaced bold or proportional bold, the addition of italics indicates replaceable or variable text. Italics denotes text you do not input literally or displayed text that changes depending on circumstance. For example: 



To connect to a remote machine using ssh, type ssh username@domain.name at a shell prompt. If the remote machine is example.com and your username on that machine is john, type ssh john@example.com. 

The mount -o remount file-system command remounts the named file system. For example, to remount the /home file system, the command is mount -o remount /home. 

To see the version of a currently installed package, use the rpm -q package command. It will return a result as follows: package-version-release. 

Note the words in bold italics above: username, domain.name, file-system, package, version and release. Each word is a placeholder, either for text you enter when issuing a command or for text displayed by the system. 

Aside from standard usage for presenting the title of a work, italics denotes the first use of a new and important term. For example: 



Publican is a DocBook publishing system. 



Expected results:

Whether mono-spaced bold or proportional bold, the addition of slant indicates replaceable or variable text. Slant denotes text you do not input literally or displayed text that changes depending on circumstance. For example: 



To connect to a remote machine using ssh, type ssh username@domain.name at a shell prompt. If the remote machine is example.com and your username on that machine is john, type ssh john@example.com. 

The mount -o remount file-system command remounts the named file system. For example, to remount the /home file system, the command is mount -o remount /home. 

To see the version of a currently installed package, use the rpm -q package command. It will return a result as follows: package-version-release. 

Note the words in bold oblique above: username, domain.name, file-system, package, version and release. Each word is a placeholder, either for text you enter when issuing a command or for text displayed by the system. 

Aside from standard usage for presenting the title of a work, slant denotes the first use of a new and important term. For example: 



Publican is a DocBook publishing system.

This is not a JBoss EAP 'Getting Started Guide' bug, 

I believe this is a Publican branding issue, Reassigning this bug to the correct component.

Rudi, feel free to knock it back to us if this isn't the correct component.

"Note the words in bold italics above: username, domain.name, file-system, package, version and release. "

All of those are in bold-italic-mono in FF 30.0.
