I'm using the standard toolset and practices from the Documentation
Guide. Maybe that piece should be revisited in the Documentation Guide,
which indicates the proper syntax looks like this:

<screen><userinput>cmd -i arg1</userinput>
<computeroutput>Uh-uh, you can't do that.</computeroutput></screen>

I certainly have no problem doing it some other way... If someone knows
that this is wrong or confusing to most (or all?) toolsets, file a bug
against the documentation-guide so we can track and fix it.
