Symbols were used for the footnotes on this page, and the proofers made all of them asterisks. As formatters, we change those to "A", "B", "C", etc. in the anchors and the footnotes themselves. (If the page used numbers, we would retain those numbers.)

'£' is a currency symbol, so we do not tag it as italics even though it looks slanted.

The attribution in the second footnote is a complete sentence in mixed small-caps, so the period goes INSIDE the tags.


The motto near the top is in quotation marks and in italics. The quotation marks form a container, but only the contents is italicized; not the container (in other words, the quotation marks go OUTSIDE the italics tags).

Each of the three sets of Verse should be enclosed in no-wraps. We can tell that it's verse and not wrappable text because both lines of each set begin with a capital letter.


Enclose the Verse in no-wraps and replicate the indentation, using an even number of leading spaces.


One small italicized word on the whole page, just to keep you on your toes.


The first three paragraphs are in a smaller font than the rest of the page, so enclose them in a pair of Block Quotes. The first line on the page is indented, so we know it's a new paragraph that must be preceded by a blank line. Current Guidelines are silent as to whether the blank line should be inside or outside the tags, so if you don't know whether this continues a Block Quote begun on the previous page, place the blank line above the tag.


The top of the page is in a smaller font than the main text, and clearly continues a letter begun on a previous page, so enclose it in Block Quotes. Since the Guidelines are silent as to the placement of the blank line, it is acceptable to place it either above or below the opening tag; but we know the blank line is within the letter, so placing it inside the tag almost certainly is consistent with the original manuscript.

Enclose the two signature blocks in separate no-wraps, since one of them is (more or less) right-justified and the other is left-justified. The names are in mixed small-caps, and are not complete sentences, so the commas go OUTSIDE the tags.

In the second letter, the signature block begins on the same line as the body text, but there's extra white space before it; the printer may just have been saving space. The example shows a good way to handle this: move "His Majesty," to a new line and enclose the entire signature block in no-wraps, so that it can be right-justified later on.


Enclose the entire letter in Block Quotes. The salutation is a complete sentence, so the period goes INSIDE the italics tags.

Within the letter, enclose the signature block in no-wraps, both to prevent the lines from being re-wrapped and because it's (more or less) right-justified.


The list is in the same size font as the rest of the text and has the same indentation, so it should not be enclosed in Block Quotes. The content is wrappable, so it should not be enclosed in no-wraps, either.

In the footnotes, every italicized term ends with a period, and all of those terms look like abbreviations, so all of those periods go INSIDE the tags.

In footnotes 1 and 10, the style seems to be to use periods instead of commas to separate the author, "Wilkin.", from the book title. Leaving a note would be fine.


The Dynasty numbers all are in small-caps: make sure they're in upper-case, and include the periods INSIDE the tags, as they are parts of the numbers.

Most of the italicized terms in the footnotes are abbreviations, so their periods go INSIDE the tags.
