These are buried in a submenu (Format : Text Style : Variable). This discourages use of semantic tags, which is generally a Bad Thing. A new toolbar should be created that includes Emphasis, Strong Emphasis, Citation, Abbreviation, Acronym, Code, Sample Output, Variable, and definition list Term and Definition. There are also a number of semantic tags that do not have so much as a menu item, which should also be included on the new toolbar: Block Quote (blockquote), Inline Quote (q), Keyboard Entry (kbd), Defining Instance (dfn), Inserted Text (ins), and Deleted Text (del). These should all have hotkeys, too. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a set of instructions in an ordered list. 2. Mark up text in each step as Code and/or Variable, as required by your local documentation requirements. 3. Grow ever more frustrated as you have to navigate to a second-level menu each time, moving the mouse perfectly horizontally... oops. Oops. *sigh* 4. Think about how easy this would be if there were hotkeys and a toolbar. This increases your frustration. 5. Develop a nervous tic. 6. Wildly overreact to a minor comment someone makes to you. Actual Results: Hurt feelings, legal action, or the invasion of a Mideast country on dubious grounds. Expected Results: A quickly produced documentation file.
