The small-caps text is all upper-case, so tag all of them and make sure all of them are all upper-case; there is no all lower-case small-caps at DP.

Enclose the two-line inscription that's surrounded by extra white space in no-wraps and replicate the indentation of the second line with an even number of spaces. At least one line in any no-wraps block must be left-justified.

Apply [Footnote] tags to the footnotes, and make sure their numbers are in sequence and match the anchors in the text.

We do not mark [Greek] text as italics even when it appears to be slanted.

A proofreading error slipped through on the 19th line--HAC should be HÆC. While it is good if proofreading errors are noticed, they are not penalised when formatting.

A colon has inadvertently been left after the 5 in footnote 5 in the proofreading rounds. If it is not removed when formatting, the formatting preview will flag an error.


The blank line in the middle represents a thought break, so place a <tb> there and make sure it's preceded and followed by a blank line.

Apply [Footnote] tags to the footnotes, and make sure their numbers are in sequence and match the anchors in the text.


Enclose the inscription at the bottom of the page in no-wraps. Centering each line within it is optional; this isn't poetry. Since these lines are entirely in upper-case, and not on the same lines as mixed-case text, do not tag them as small-caps; but do make sure they're all upper-case.

The blank line in the middle of the inscription is just a blank line, not a thought break.


Enclose all of the text for this illustration in an [Illustration: ] tag and precede that tag with one blank line to separate it from any text on the preceding page.

Replicating the spacing in the page heading (FRONTISPIECE PLATE 1) will require special handling in post-processing, so enclose it in no-wraps. Tag the italics and leave some spaces between that and the "PLATE 1".

This is one illustration, so completely ignore the individual numbers 1-11.

The caption at the bottom is wrappable and all-caps.


This is a Title page. It's a Major Division, so precede it with four blank lines. Enclose all of its text in one pair of no-wraps, leave all of the text left-justified, and be sure to tag all the italics. The line "Flags of The World" is in small caps so tag that and check the case, but there are no other small caps on the page.

Though the italics ending with "&c., &c." is not a complete sentence ("F. S. A.," ends with a comma) the period after the second "&c." goes inside the italics markup because "&c." is an abbreviation.

Leave one or two blank lines where you think they're appropriate, but don't fret about it, because spacing and centering almost certainly will be changed in post-processing.


Part of a Table of Contents (ToC). Enclose all of it in one pair of no-wraps. The entry at the top is a continuation of text from the previous page, so there's no reason to keep the "Chapter IV. (continued)" even if the proofers had done so; just let the actual text begin on the line immediately following the opening no-wrap tag, and make that the very first line on the page, not preceded by a blank line.

Leave one or two blank lines before "CHAPTER V." (two is more usual, as it preserves the original grouping, but either is acceptable) and one blank line after it.

Make sure there are (at least) six spaces before each of the page numbers, and remove the alignment periods if the proofers have not already done so.

The last two entries in the ToC are in mixed case small-caps. Tag each one separately, make sure that the case of the words matches the original, and remove the alignment periods.


This is the first regular text page of the book, and it begins with two headings, each of which is a Major Division, so place four blank lines above the book title and another four blank lines above the chapter title.

The chapter summary is part of the heading, so precede it with one blank line and follow it with two blank lines to separate it from the text body. The summary is in a smaller font than the regular text, and it's wrappable, so enclose it in block quotes.

The footnote anchor and reference are asterisks which we replace with "A". Use [A] in the anchor, and [Footnote A: blah] in the reference. When there are several footnotes on a page and they use symbols instead of numbers, the proofers will have used asterisks for all of them. We formatters replace them with "A" "B" "C" etc.

Footnotes usually are printed in a smaller font and, like the one on this page, often are hard to read. Finding formatting in them requires extra attention.

We do not enclose footnotes in block quotes just because they're printed smaller, but footnotes may contain text that needs to be enclosed in either block quotes or no-wraps, for the same reasons we use them elsewhere.


Enclose each of the poetry blocks in no-wraps and make sure they're left-justified, since there is no indentation in any of their lines. Do not indent lines of poetry just because there is a leading quotation mark on the first line.


Enclose all of the text for this illustration in an [Illustration: ] tag and precede that tag with one blank line to separate it from any text on the preceding page.

The caption is all upper-case (not small-caps) and is wrappable, so it goes after the colon-space of the generated tag.

"Frontispiece." is in italics (period INSIDE the tags), and since it's right-justified in the image, enclose it in no-wraps as a signal to the post-processor. It's part of the information for the illustration, so it goes inside the brackets.


See the explanation for page 215, above. Don't tag "London" with <f></f> tags unless the Project Comments request it (which they hardly ever do).
