The Elements of Style

This section discusses typographical and syntactical conventions used throughout POE's documentation.

Capitalization (c12n)

People expect ``kernel to mean the operating system's, not POE's. Session also has a meaning in Unix, and while there's a little overlap between that meaning and POE's, it's different and similar enough at the same time to be confusing.

Capitalize the names of POE classes to distinguish them from operating system constructs. Preface them with ``POE's now and again to keep the reader oriented.
