I rather like the small-caps font variant attribute when used for a syntax. - Andy talk 22:31, 10 February 2007 (EST)

Really? I wasn't sure about it, since small caps has trouble with punctuation and numbers (see Silver to Gold, Brimstone, Nexus, Chrism, and Intercession as examples. But I thought it was a good way to set it off without using a letterbox. Jeremy 23:44, 10 February 2007 (EST)

That is more of an issue with the fact that it is bolded. Only text is affected by small-caps, and not the punctuation and numbers, and as such, the punctuation and numbers appear as normal, with bolding and all. Small-caps'd text, however, is not bolded, thus the parenthesis and the numbers appear different than the text. I've looked into attempting to fix the issue by somehow unbolding the emphasized text within the definition list/definition term HTML tags (which is what the semicolon does -- defines text as a definition term), however, my attempts at experimenting didn't yield any useful results. What you could do is give the syntax a bullet, bold the word "syntax," then use the font-variant tags. (I added the number 1 to the end of the syntax just to show an example.)
