New chapter: precede with 4 blank lines, separate the elements of its heading with 1 blank line, separate the last heading from the body with 2 blank lines.

If the first words of a chapter are in small-caps, we normally just use untagged mixed-case instead.

The colon after the italics is a separator and goes OUTSIDE the tags.


The semi-colon after the italics is a separator and goes OUTSIDE the tags.


Nothing special. As there are no completely italicized sentences on this page, punctuation following italics goes OUTSIDE the tags.


Same as 133, above.


The signature lines are (more-or-less) right-justified, so enclose them in no-wraps. The blank line between them was the choice of the formatter, but is easier to read than using two consecutive lines.

Since the name itself does not appear to be a complete sentence (there's no comma after "Truly yours", but other letters in this book have such commas), the ending period goes OUTSIDE the tags.


The poem's title is wrappable, so it goes OUTSIDE the no-wraps. It is a complete sentence for formatting purposes, so the period goes INSIDE the tags. The title and poem appear to be part of the narrative, so just one blank line above the title is appropriate.


No formatting on this page.


Same as 135, above.


The short horizontal line below the chapter heading is decorative, not a thought break.

The salutation is indented further than the paragraph that follows it, so enclose it in no-wraps, but leave it left-justified.


The hyphen after the italicized "foster" in "foster-*father" goes OUTSIDE the tags.

We know "foster-father" should be hyphenated, because it appears that way in the middle of the previous line, so the asterisk after the italics tags should not have been used.
