- definitions that are provided in full sentences, making it easier to absorb information. See dark grey font.
- definitions that are accompanied by a sentence that makes it easier to understand how the definition relates to the Parliament. See italics.
- definitions that are cross-referenced. This makes it easy to jump from one definition to another. See orange links.
