Apropos of my mention elsewhere today of the use of "i.e.", here is a short example from theIF4IT website, not coincidentally in the section on configuration management:

Quote:
The readers will notice that most sections in the Table of Contents (TOC) use a format where the TOC entry is prefixed with a topic name, followed by a short descriptive title (e.g. "TOPIC_NAME: TOPIC_RELATED_SECTION_TITLE").


In this case I can say with certainty that "e.g." is incorrect and that "i.e." would be correct.

An example(!) of correctly using "e.g." in that context would have been:

...(e.g. Taxonomy: Understanding Configuration Management Classifications or Categorizations)...

Guess I'm in a good mood today.

Thank you Diarmid for catching the error. I will pass the correction on.

Unlike the ITIL books, which take years to propagate corrections, you'll notice that the corrections get deployed rather rapidly on IF4IT.com (one of the many advantages of open content).

If you find anything else please feel free to let me know.

My Best
