This guide uses specific typographical conventions to help you distinguish among the various PageScript 32 and syntax elements. These conventions are used to make the guide more readable.
|Monospaced font||Code examples||for i := 0 to PSGetPrinterCount()|
|Monospaced bold font||PageScript 32 commands and functions||PSBeginDoc(), PSGetPrinter()|
|Monospaced italic font||Variable names, array names, arguments||cTitle|

|- Raw||Procedures and function that are supported by the RAW print mode.|
|- Emulation||Procedures and function that are supported by the EMULATION print mode.
The EMULATION print mode is not available at the DLL level. Instead, it is implemented at the programming language level and not supported by every programming languages.
For this reason, this image is not used in this guide but may appear in future language specific documentation.
Currently, only [x]Harbour is supported.
|- Windows||Procedures and function that are supported by the WINDOWS print mode.|
|- PDF File||Procedures and function that are supported by the PDF File print mode.|
|- Before||Indicates a procedure or function that must be called before printing (before calling PSBeginDoc() or PSBeginRawDoc()).|
