This question already has an answer here:


How do I type the F3 thingy (and the bold version) like the one above? Is there any formatting used?

[ADD] Using <kbd> tag only produces this effect: F3, but not the image above. Does it have variations on different sites?

    There are different formats for different sites (Ask Ubuntu Meta is different to Ask Ubuntu). That image is the old style, and the style of Ask Ubuntu Meta. – Tim Nov 28 '14 at 15:42
  • bold and italic is achieved by standard markdown inside, try: <kbd>**F3**</kbd> and <kbd>*F3*</kbd> – gnat Nov 28 '14 at 15:44

You use <kbd></kbd> tags to wrap around such text.
