colour coding

a system of organising items by labelling similar contents with the same colour

COMMENT: A manuscript may be marked up in colour by the sub-editor, with, for example, chapter headings indicated in green, paragraph headings in purple, etc., making sure always that an explanation of the colours and the typography required is given on the first pages of the MS for the compositor to follow. For corrections to proofs, normal colour coding is that the printer marks his corrections in green; any corrections noticed by the publisher or author which they believe to be mistakes made by the printer are marked in red; all other changes are shown in blue or black.
