RE: UBC italicizing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Panos-
The explanation is on page 2-98 at the end of the 2nd paragraph for Chapter
19: " Italics are used in this chapter to indicate where the Uniform
Building Code differs substantially from the ACI standard."

	Does anyone know the reason for italicizing text in the UBC? In the
	preface to the UBC (page 2-iii in the 97 UBC), an explanation is
given
	for marginal markings. However, I cannot find an explanation for
	italicizing. An example of this occurs in section 1921.6.2.2 where
the
	first half of this section is in normal text while the last half is
	italicized.

	thanks in advance,
	Panos
