+\section{Naming conventions and marks}
+We have some conventions especially on naming that are intended to be
+consistent throughout this manual.
+Manufacturer and product names are formatted in accordance with the standard
+rules of English grammar, e.g. ``\playerman{} playback is currently
+unsupported''. Manufacturer and model names are proper nouns, and
+thus are written beginning with a capital letter.
+% write a bit more about names etc. here.
+This manual has some parts that are marked with icons on the margin to help
+you finding important parts or parts you could skip. The following icons
+are used:
+\note{This indicates a note. A note starts always with the text ``Note''.
+ For easier finding of notes we have put this an icon in the margin like
+ here. Notes are used to mark informations that could help you
+ or indicate a possible ``weirdness'' in rockbox that would be explained.
+\warn{This is a warning. In contrast to notes as mentioned above a warning
+ should be taken more seriously. While ignoring notes won't cause any serious
+ damage ignoring warnings \emph{could} cause serious damage. If you're new to
+ rockbox you should really read the warnings before doing anything that is
+ warned about.
+\blind{This icon marks a section that are intended especially for the blind
+ and visually impaired. As they can't
+ read the manual in the same way seeing people can do we've added some
+ additional descriptions. If you aren't blind or visually impaired you most
+ likely can completely skip these blocks. To make this easier, there is an
+ icon shown in the margin like here.
