The leading words in italics are complete sentences for formatting purposes, so the periods go INSIDE the tags.

The heading begins a new Section and should be preceded by 2 blank lines. Although it's large and bold, we do not mark either of those in headings, unless only part of a heading line is in boldface.

Place an [Illustration] tag between paragraphs. Since there's no caption, there should be no colon or space after the word 'Illustration', and that's how the button will add the tag. (You ARE always using the buttons, and not typing in the tags, of course.)


The numbered paragraphs are wrappable, with ordinary indentation and apparently normal font size, so they should not be enclosed in either kind of block tags.

The line in mixed-case small-caps looks like a Section heading, so precede it with 2 blank lines.

The lines in italics are sub-Section headings. Our Guidelines only cover Chapter and Section headings, so sub-Sections should be preceded (and followed) by just one blank line, unless the Project Comments or Discussion say otherwise. In Post-Processing, it will be easy to identify these lines, should the PP'er wish to treat them in some other way.


The numbered paragraphs are wrappable, with ordinary indentation and apparently normal font size, so they should not be enclosed in either kind of block tags.

The leading words in italics are complete sentences for formatting purposes, so the periods go INSIDE the tags. The em-dashes go OUTSIDE the tags.


A Chapter is a "Major Division," so precede it with 4 blank lines. Separate each element of the chapter heading with one blank line, and leave 2 blank lines before the beginning of the regular body of text.

The second heading line appears to be bold, but since the entire line is in that font, we do not mark it.

The third heading line is in italics, so we do mark that. The parentheses are containers and remain OUTSIDE the italics tags.

The quotation marks in the third heading line must be included within the italics, which is a departure from our normal way of formatting them. The reason for this exception is that, in this case, they are part of the heading, rather than containers for it. Finally, the first one is in the middle of the italics and should be included within those tags, so its mate should also be inside the same italics tags.


Two italicized words on the second line; not one italicized phrase.

The quotation is surrounded by extra white space, so it should be enclosed in a pair of block tags. Whether to use no-wraps or Block Quotes is unclear unless you know the source from which was taken, so we normally use no-wraps.


The second quotation clearly is from verse, so we enclose it in no-wraps. Its first line begins in the middle, both visually and contextually, so we reproduce that indentation using an even number of spaces. At least one line in any no-wraps block must be left-justified.

For consistency, use no-wraps for the first quotation also.

The colons following the italicized phrases are separators and go OUTSIDE the italics tags.

Near the bottom of the page, each of three phrases belongs in its own pair of italics tags, and "la" is upright in all of them, so separate tagging would be needed regardless.


In the paragraph above the Section heading, one italicized word is followed by a question mark and another by an exclamation mark. In both cases, those marks belong with the words and should be INSIDE the italics tags. When dealing with either of these punctuation characters, you have to read the text to decide where such punctuation belongs; a simple in/out rule does not exist for them.


Although short, this is not an easy page.

There is one paragraph break, so that's where the [Illustration] tag must go. Its caption consists of two wrappable paragraphs. Its identification, "Fig. 3." is in small-caps, and that number along with both periods should go INSIDE those tags.

The second paragraph of the caption contains several italicized abbreviations, and their periods go INSIDE the italics tags.

"m. erector pili muscle" contains two separate italicized terms ("m." refers to a label in the diagram, "erector pili" is its Latin description) and one typographical error that was not [**noted] by anyone: "m." should be "m.r."

Both the caption and the regular text also contain a small-cap "D" which must be in upper-case, as shown in the example.

The in-line heading at the beginning of the paragraph is in italics; arguably, there are two headings there and they should be tagged separately, but enclosing both of them in one set of tags will more closely match the appearance of the scan and be easier to read in Plain Text. The words form a complete sentence for formatting purposes, so the period goes INSIDE the tags. The em-dash goes outside.

In the footnotes, the italicized citation contains abbreviations. The periods are parts of those abbreviations and go INSIDE the tags.


It is common for the first page of a magazine to begin with the name of the magazine and its publication information, even if there was a separate Title page. Treat these headings as "Major Divisions," preceded by 4 blank lines.

Separate the elements of a heading with one blank line. The second line has three parts: enclose it in no-wraps and leave 6 spaces between each part.

"Vol." is in mixed-case small-caps, and we include the volume number in those tags. The center part is just all-caps, and should not be tagged. On the right-hand side, it is unclear whether or not "No." is in small-caps, and it was not tagged that way. For consistency with "Vol.", it might have been better to tag "No. 10." as small-caps, too.

Each article in most magazines, including this one, is a chapter and should be preceded by 4 blank lines, so on this page, there will be two sets of 4 blank lines. Two blank lines should follow this heading.


Each line in both quotations begins with a capital letter, so both are non-wrappable verse and should be enclosed in no-wraps.

"vu" appears twice in succession near the beginning of the next-to-last paragraph. The first one is italicized and the comma goes OUTSIDE the tags.
