Highlight Icons and Boxes

We have used a few special icons and text box types to alert you to important information.

The Icons appear both in the boxes, where addition explanation is required, or bare, to highlight a section of the text.

Be Aware:

The Alert Icon is used to let you know about potential pitfalls and places where confusion can arise.

All readers of this manual will want to be aware of these areas.
