Throughout this manual, various terms will be highlighted in different ways to indicate the type of their significance. If some concept is a certain programming utility in Slate with a definite implementation, it will be formatted in a typewriter-style. If a term is technical with a consistent definition in Slate, but cannot have a definite implementation, it will be set in SMALL CAPITAL LETTERS. Emphasis on its own is denoted by italics. When expression/result patterns are entered, typewriter-style text will be used with a Slate> prompt before the statement and its result will be set in italicized typewritten text below the line.
