This style guide can be a little intimidating; it covers a lot of material. This page is a brief list of some of the most important points and some of the most common issues.

The style guide is mostly intended for reference; we don't expect you to read it straight through. The left nav is extensive, but that's to aid in making things findable; if you do a search-in-page, you may be able to find your topic in the left nav.

This page doesn't provide details or justifications; for more info about topics on this page, follow the links.
