The style guides are described through a series of tables. The left entry is color
coded to reflect whether the item is a standard, a strong suggestion, a simple suggestion
or just a good idea.
|Entries that are identified with red
color background, and bold and slightly larger text
are regarded as a coding standard.
Any and all code must
follow this standard.
||Entries that are identified with yellow color
background and bold and italic text are regarded as a strong suggestion. When
ever possible you should follow this suggestion.
||Entries that are identified with blue
color background and italic text are suggested for good maintainable code. These
entries very often make the code more readable as well as more portable.
||Entries without a color are still good
ideas/suggestions but are not as strongly emphasized.
