Hi Suf
  
Thanks for your work over the weekend. I'll go along with removing the colours in [[Recommended sound devices]] (I'm sure this is best for the section headers, but not quite so sure for the "Compatibillity" text). For example if you look at the "applies to" text at [[Mac Bugs]] I think removing the colour on such a long page makes it quite hard to pick out the Audacity versions which are applicable (and if we ever get a lot of text in the page about sound devices I suspect it might be sensible to reinstate colours there.)

I see we're both slipping into using <nowiki>{{shortcut}}</nowiki> for emphasising text that needs to be typed e.g. {{shortcut|<nowiki> <nowiki> </nowiki> </nowiki>}} though we're telling others not use templates for non-intended purposes.  So I think we have to either state this is an acceptable usage of <nowiki> {{shortcut}} </nowiki>; or simply '''bolden''' the text; or create another template for general text emphasis. On the whole I prefer to use <nowiki>{{shortcut}}</nowiki> only for shortcuts, and think another template is possibly best, at least for power users. If we had another template I have in mind a (not too light) blue in keeping with the site e.g.

"You need to type <span style="background:#82CAFA; font-weight:bold"> <nowiki> <nowiki> </nowiki> </nowiki></span>  for this to work."
 +

This might work better e.g. to emphasise <span style="background:#82CAFA; font-weight:bold">Pause</span>  in that "splitting recordings" tutorial.

This is an alternative lighter background:

"You need to type <span style="background:#AFDCEC; font-weight:bold"> <nowiki> <nowiki> </nowiki> </nowiki></span>  for this to work."

Is this important enough to justify another template? It's only a simple one, so would not take long.

Hi Suf

I see we're both slipping into using {{shortcut}} for emphasising text that needs to be typed e.g. </nowiki> though we're telling others not use templates for non-intended purposes. So I think we have to either state this is an acceptable usage of {{shortcut}} ; or simply bolden the text; or create another template for general text emphasis. On the whole I prefer to use {{shortcut}} only for shortcuts, and think another template is possibly best, at least for power users. If we had another template I have in mind a (not too light) blue in keeping with the site e.g.

"You need to type <nowiki> </nowiki> for this to work."

This might work better e.g. to emphasise Pause in that "splitting recordings" tutorial.

This is an alternative lighter background:

"You need to type <nowiki> </nowiki> for this to work."


Is this important enough to justify another template? It's only a simple one, so would not take long.
