The commands look great.  There is another minor thing, and I'm pretty sure
it's not documented, is displaying parts of config files.  In other sections
of the Server Guide <programlisting> tags are used.  The rendering is the
same as using <screen> tags, so I'm really not entirely sure it makes a huge
difference.  But after looking up the tags on, it looks like
<programlisting> is more appropriate for config files [1][2].

One of the places I noticed is in the Console Security section part of
/etc/event.d/control-alt-delete file:

<screen><command>#exec /sbin/shutdown -r now "Control-Alt-Delete

Should probably be:

#exec /sbin/shutdown -r now "Control-Alt-Delete pressed"

I agree with only using bold to highlight specific parts of input or output.

Since the only small nitpick for me is the <programlisting> thing I went
ahead and committed the changes so far to revision #3655.  I figure it's
better to get the content in there before the "new content" freeze in

Thanks for you efforts Gilbert.
