最近在看一本电子书,这本书从结构到语言都很令人满意,唯一不爽的是在描述操作步骤的时候全部采用粗体字,看起来颇为费劲,例如

  1. Start InfoPath.
  2. In the Fill Out a Form dialog box, click Design a Form.
  3. In the Design a Form task pane, click On My Computer.
  4. In the Open in Design Mode dialog box, locate the folder where you installed the training files, and then double-click the Lab 14 folder.
  5. Select Lab14Template.xsn, and then click Open.

如果能够仅将这段中的菜单名称文件名称用粗体表示,而其它文字只需常规,如下

  1. Start InfoPath.
  2. In the Fill Out a Form dialog box, click Design a Form.
  3. In the Design a Form task pane, click On My Computer.
  4. In the Open in Design Mode dialog box, locate the folder where you installed the training files, and then double-click the Lab 14 folder.
  5. Select Lab14Template.xsn, and then click Open.

相比之下,后一种描述方法在表达上主次分明、错落有致、赏心悦目,对照着进行操作时亦能得心应手,迅速找到对应的选项,阅读效率十倍于前一方法。

粗体用来显示强调的效果,可是千篇一律的强调就完全失去了强调的意义。强调是与众不同。

仅以次表达读此书唯一遗憾之处,亦警示自己写作时切记。
