Ok, so a good way of codifying this would be:

For typed-in characters, use <userinput>. Nonprintable characters should
be wrapped in <keycap> eg:

	Enter: <userinput>Heading 1 <keycap>Tab<keycap> Heading 2
	<keycap>Enter</keycap></userinput> into a text document to begin 	a
simple table.

Sounds good. I'll add this to our style guide.

Thanks again for helping clarify this,
