The quotation at the top needs to be marked as a Block. It's blank Verse, therefore not wrappable, so no-wrap tags are the ones to use.

Even though the chapter begins mid-page, it's still a new chapter and should be preceded by 4 blank lines.

The sub-heading is in all-caps, not in small-caps. This squat font often appears in titles and captions. It's part of the chapter heading, so leave one blank line above it, but leave two blank lines below it to indicate the start of the body of the text.

The footnote anchor and reference use an asterisk; replace them both with "A". (If there had been several non-numeric footnotes, the others would be "B" "C" etc.)

The attribution at the end of the footnote is in italics. It's a complete sentence for formatting purposes, so the period goes inside the tags.


This page uses hanging indents and the text is wrappable, so enclose all of it in one pair of Block Quotes.

The first line begins a new entry, so it must be preceded by a blank line. Semantically, that blank line belongs within the block quote (if the page break had occurred elsewhere, that's where this particular blank line would have been), but since the Guidelines currently are silent on the matter, it is acceptable to place that blank line above the opening block tag, as shown in the model for this page.

Mark the small-caps as well as the italics. The commas after the small-caps are separators, not part of what is in small-caps, so they go OUTSIDE the tags.

The dates following the italicized publications listed on this page refer to when they were published; they are not parts of the titles of those publications or articles, and go OUTSIDE the tags.

Error: In the model page, "May--June, 1905" should be "May-June, 1905" (with one hyphen, not two).


A short word in italics ("he") can be hard to spot.

When an italicized word is split at the end of a page, place the closing italics tag OUTSIDE the hyphen and the continuation asterisk. The primary Post-Processing tool (GUIGUTS) knows how to handle that sequence.


This is a page from a magazine. The "Chapters" in most magazines are the articles, and the divisions within the articles are Sections or sub-Sections. So, there should be four blank lines before the article's title, and one blank line between the title and the attribution ("BY AN OLD PENINSULAR.").

"PART VIII.--CHAPTER XIX." is a new Section in this serialized article, so it should be preceded by 2 blank lines (the same 2 blank lines that follow the end of the Chapter headings). Don't be misled by the presence of the word "Chapter;" in cases like this, they're just Section headings.

Each line of the Chapter and Section headings is in all-caps; none of them is in small-caps.


This is a Title page. It is a "Major Division," so it should be preceded by 4 blank lines. Enclose everything in no-wraps, be sure to mark anything requiring in-line formatting, and indicate that there is an illustration.

Whatever spacing you use between lines probably will be changed in Post-Processing, so do just enough to indicate where you think the logical groups are.

"Edinburgh" is in a different typeface, but we don't mark such things.

The short horizontal line near the bottom is decorative; it isn't a thought break.


There is an italicized in-line list near the top of the first column. Each component of it should be tagged separately, and the commas go OUTSIDE the tags.


This is the kind of page where you just have to learn how it's done. It's pretty typical for a magazine, but not for anything else.

The publication's title and issue information appear at the top. They form a "Major Division" and should be preceded by 4 blank lines.

The issue information has three components: left, center, right. We don't have a standard for this, but it occurs in other situations as well, such as illustration captions. Enclose such a line in no-wraps and leave at least 6 spaces (F2 left 7) between each of the segments. On this page, it'll be in the same no-wrap as the title area in which it occurs.

"Vol." clearly is in small-caps; include the volume number in those tags. We can't tell whether or not "No." is in small-caps, but for consistency with "Vol." it's been tagged that way.

In most magazines, each article is a new Chapter, so precede the article's title with 4 blank lines.

Credit for the article appears at the bottom, in what looks something like a footnote. Again, there is no standard for this, but it occurs frequently in these magazines, so mark it as a footnote that has no number/letter, and leave a note to remind the Post-Processor that it'll need some special handling.


There's little special about this page, except that it requires many markups and it's easy to miss some of them or use the wrong tags.

There's one all-caps small-caps phrase in the middle of italics: close and re-open the italics around it.

Greek is not italicized even though it often is printed with slanted characters.

The comma at the very end of the page is almost certainly within an italicized sentence that continues on the next page, so include it INSIDE the tags.

Note: A mid-page italic paragraph is missing its end quotes, so it would be appropriate to leave a note: posuerunt.[** "]


Each of the three verses should be in no-wraps. In the last one, a line was too wide for the paper, so some of it had to be printed on the next line. E-books don't have those physical constraints, so bring the rest of that line up to the end of the line to which it belongs.


The admittedly slight extra white space just above the in-line heading indicates a change of topic, which is confirmed by the presence of the in-line heading. Indicate that change with a thought break <tb>.

The in-line heading is in mixed small-caps.

The rather verbose footnote leaves no additional room for body text and will continue on the next page, so follow the closing bracket of the footnote with a continuation asterisk.
