Lots of small-caps on this page, some in mixed-case and some in all-caps. Tag them and make sure the capitalization matches the scan in the mixed-case, and that the all-caps is in all upper-case. We don't use all lower-case small-caps.


Enclose the text that's in a smaller font in Block Quotes.

"W. Kahl" is in italics, not just "Kahl." Compare this "W" to the upright one at the beginning of the first full paragraph of the main text on the page. Entire names normally are the unit, not just the surname.


A chapter is a "Major Division," so precede it with four blank lines, leave a blank line between "CHAPTER II" and the name of the chapter (to prevent them from being rewrapped during post-processing), then leave two blank lines between the headings and the body of the text.

"What sort of freedom?" is in mixed small-caps, and it is a question, so the "?" belongs INSIDE the tags. This happens to be an excellent example that helps explain where the punctuation belongs, because the overall sentence is declarative, while the clause is interrogative.

Near the end of the page is a clause in all-caps small-caps. Make sure it's entirely capitalized; we don't use all lower-case small caps; and the trailing colon is a separator that goes OUTSIDE the tags.

The first line of the last paragraph is formatted as:

There are <sc>TWO KINDS OF FREEDOM</sc>, <sc>LAWFUL</sc> and <sc>UNLAWFUL</sc>:

and NOT as:

There are <sc>TWO KINDS OF FREEDOM, LAWFUL</sc> and <sc>UNLAWFUL</sc>:

We do it this way for semantic reasons: "TWO KINDS OF FREEDOM" identifies a concept, while "LAWFUL" and "UNLAWFUL" is a list of the two kinds. When analysing sentences like this one, it may be helpful to consider where you would pause for emphasis when speaking the clause.

It also may be helpful to compare this clause with the one discussed below, for example 164.


The mixed-case small caps heading begins a new section, so precede it with two blank lines and make sure the capitalization matches the scan. The clause a bit later on is in all-caps small-caps, so make sure it's entirely capitalized.

Just above mid-page is the sentence:

In this view man is a <sc>CREATURE, LIMITED IN EVERY WAY, THEREFORE IN MANY WAYS DEPENDENT UPON</sc> external rules, forces, and authorities.

and we use only one pair of small-caps for all of it, even though it contains two commas. Unlike the small-caps discussed for example 163, this is just one clause with some phrase-delimited commas in it, and "CREATURE" is just part of the clause. There's no list in this sentence.


The question in the next-to-last paragraph is in boldface, and since it's a question, the "?" belongs to it and goes INSIDE the tags. Keep in mind that the quotation marks are containers and should remain OUTSIDE the tags.


The section heading towards the bottom should be preceded by two spaces. It looks boldface (well, it is boldface), but we do not mark boldface in a heading unless it's on the same line as non-boldface, which this is not.


Tag the boldface phrase on the first and second lines. It's unclear whether the "!" belongs to that phrase or to the entire sentence, but if you leave a [** note], the post-processor can make that decision.


The period at the end of the second paragraph goes OUTSIDE the boldface tags, as only part of the sentence is bold.


Since there is no paragraph break on the page, move the [Illustration] tag to the top of the page, precede it with an asterisk to alert the post-processor, and follow it with a blank line to separate it from the regular text.

The page uses symbols for footnotes, and the proofers have replaced them with asterisks. We sequentially change them to "A", "B", etc. in the anchors and the corresponding footnotes themselves.


Tag the illustration caption and move it to the paragraph break, preceded and followed by a blank line.

There are two single letters in small-caps; both must be in upper-case, as we do not use all lower-case small-caps.

The page uses an asterisk for the footnote; change it to "A" in the anchor and the footnote itself.

Note: Previous proofreading rounds overlooked the missing period after Fig. 13 in the caption, so it would be appropriate to add the missing period: Fig. 13.--Cubiculum....
