Full-page illustration with captions. Each line of the caption should be kept separate, either by interspersing blank lines as was done here, or with no-wraps. The blank lines are simpler and perhaps more closely match the scan.

The blank line above a full-page Illustration tag is optional. The reason for including it is to prevent the tag from being accidentally rewrapped with the last text line on the previous page during post-processing.

"CAT BIRD" is just upper-case, not small caps, so no in-line tags.


A Title Page is a "Major Division," so precede it with 4 blank lines. Enclose all of the text in one set of no-wraps and tag everything requiring in-line markups. The line of italics is obvious; more subtle is the "AND" on the author's line, which is in small-caps.

Line spacing on a Title Page is arbitrary, as the Post-Processor will do it his/her way anyway.


The Guidelines do not explicitly identify the Copyright page as a "Major Division," but marking it that way (4 blank lines) separates it from the Title Page that normally precedes it.

The text on a Copyright page usually is not wrappable, so no-wraps were used here. Leaving extra blank lines is arbitrary, although in this case, at least one blank line should separate the notice itself from the printer's information.

The word "Printers" is in Black-letter, but we do not mark it unless the Project Discussion specified that special fonts be marked.

The printer's name and location are in small-caps, and there are no normal lower-case letters on that line, so just enclose the entire line in small-caps tags.


Other Major Divisions in Text

The Preface is a "Major Division," so precede it with 4 blank lines. Separate the heading from the body with 2 blank lines.

The horizontal line is decorative; ignore it.


The signature is right-justified, so enclose it in no-wraps. The location and date are left-justified, so enclose them in a separate pair of no-wraps. Don't attempt to reproduce their mini-centering.

The location is in small-caps, so tag it that way, including the internal comma but not the ending one that separates it from the date on the next line.


The Table of Contents is a "Major Division," so precede it with 4 blank lines. Separate the heading "Contents" from the body with 2 blank lines.

Enclose everything else in a ToC in no-wraps, and leave at least 6 spaces before the page numbers to signal right-justification.

Tag all the small-caps, including "Page," since it's in small-caps too.

Line-spacing is arbitrary, and indenting the sub-entries is not required, but doing both of them may help the Post-Processor: it's easier to remove indentations than to add them.


The in-line paragraph headings are in boldface. The letters represent sequencing, while the names are identifiers, so they should be tagged separately. In both cases, the periods belong INSIDE the tags.

The second and third paragraphs obviously are indented and therefore should be enclosed in (one pair of) Block Quotes. However, the entire body of text is also indented (as compared with the footnote and the page number), so it also must be enclosed in Block Quotes. This is an example of "nested" Block Quotes, a not-uncommon situation in some books.

The first footnote is a continuation from the previous page, so we precede the left bracket of the tag with a continuation asterisk and do not include a footnote number (that was done at the beginning of the footnote).

The last footnote will continue on the next page, so we follow its closing bracket with a continuation asterisk.

Even though the footnote anchors may appear to be bold, don't add bold markup. The post-processor can add bold globally if it is needed.


Similar to 027, above, but simpler. The entire page is indented (compare the right margin with the page number), so it is entirely enclosed in one set of Block Quotes.

The gender symbol is shown as [M], presumably in accordance with the Project Comments. That [M] is not a footnote anchor.


Similar to 027, but simpler. The footnote contains an italicized in-line list, so each item in that list should be tagged separately; the commas in that list are separators and belong OUTSIDE the tags.

"all the Anserine birds." ends at the right margin, but since the other entries on the page are new paragraphs that begin in boldface, both the proofers and the formatters placed a paragraph break after it.


This is not an easy page. The headings appear to begin new Sections, so we precede each of them with two blank lines.

Part of each heading is in mixed-small caps and part is in boldface. If the entire heading line had appeared to be in boldface, we would not tag it, but since there are two different font weights here, it should be marked. The boldface is not in small-caps.

The main part of the body text has a wide right margin to allow space for the right-justified italicized names. Enclosing the body of each Section in Block Quotes will alert the Post-Processor that special formatting is needed. The Section headings do not belong within the Block Quotes, so the Block Quotes must close and reopen each time.

The trickiest part of this page is the right-justified italicized names. Placing them on the same lines as ordinary text, preceded by 6 spaces, will not work, because the text is wrappable, and extra embedded spaces in wrappable text are discarded by the post-processing tools. However, placing those right-justified words on lines of their own, enclosed in no-wraps, will alert the Post-Processor that special formatting is needed.
