How does it treat symbols in quotes?


tonea.ctr.morrow@...
 

Okay, based on feedback I am designing my help files for HTML format. This does support a frame setup: the top or header frame has navigation buttons and the logo that links back to the main page. Left frame has the table of contents, index, and search. Right frame is the display window.

 

Here is my question--on the search frame, I have the following sentence:

 

Enter one or more keywords to search (the wildcards supported are '*' for one or more unknown characters and '?' for a single unknown character):

 

If you have punctuation turned off, do I need to rewrite that sentence to something like this:

 

Enter one or more keywords to search (the wildcards supported are '*' asterisk for one or more unknown characters and '?' question mark for a single unknown character):

 

Also, any comments you want to make about frames is fine too!

 

Thanks!

Hi.  I don't think you need to re-write anything. IF the user has their punctuation turned off, then they should understand the consequences of that action and it is not your responsibility as a content author to accommodate every possible configuration a user may change.

I thought it was going to be just a web page in one window. If you are saying characters the a bit to say without the quotes would be of help I've seen this elsewhere. * and ? are pretty standard wildcards meaning respectively anything of any length up to here or from here onward, and ? is one char at this position is anything.
