Terminal references should include the terminal's main page name followed by a semicolon (;). Next, the reference should include the terminal name itself and the name of the specific entry, separated by a comma.
Terminal entries should link directly to the entry being referenced. This can be achieved by appending a pound symbol (#) and the entry's name to the link of the main terminal page.
