4.11 Special Markup

This section describes special markup that we use in the MySQL Reference Manual:

  • Markup that distinguishes sections of a document to use for generating Unix man pages.

  • Markup that distinguishes Reference Manual content to be loaded into help tables in the mysql database. The server uses these tables to support its server-side help capability.

  • Markup for functions, operators, SQL statements, and so for, for which links to the appropriate descriptions can be generated automatically.
