UI text that refers to UI labels/controls - Correct Style? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    My question is slightly outside the realm of this forum, but it's the closest.

    What is the correct usage and format when referring to a UI control label?

    Do I bold (or not) the name of the control in the UI string? For instance, say I have a control label called "Settings." In the UI text that describes the procedure that involves the control, do I write:

    "To configure your system, click Settings."


    "To configure your system, click Settings."

    In XP the UI procedure text that refers to the control is not bold. Is there a style for Vista? Again, keep in mind that I'm not asking about the control label style, but the UI procedure string that refers to the control.
