Spelling, terms and glossary

Feel free to use the pn (proper name) text role to mark up special names like TYPO3 Core Team when it’s desirable to make them clearly visible. The recommended reST source for this is:

`TYPO3 Core Team`:pn:

Put :pn: to the end of the text. This facilitates reading the source. Currently the ‘pn’ text role is defined in file Includes.rst.txt. It is a derivative of ‘emphasis’ and shown in italics. We are free to change that in our theme. A future Sphinx will be able to automatically create a sorted list of all proper names used.
