The middle of a Table of Contents. Enclose the entire page in one pair of no-wraps, tag the italics, and make sure there are at least 6 spaces before the page numbers.

Leaving extra blank lines above the various headings is optional but helpful to the post-processor.

Leave all of the lines left-justified; even though the chapter descriptions are printed as hanging indents, don't bother marking them with block quotes, because the page already is in no-wraps, so the block quote tags will have no effect.

NOTE: the next example has a similar appearance to this one, but was formatted with block quotes to help preserve the hanging indents. In both cases, using the Project Discussion to ask for the post-processor's preferences probably is a good idea.


Normally, a List of Illustrations (LOI) is formatted like a Table of Contents (enclosed in no-wraps), but this is an unusual LOI: there are no page numbers, but there are Plate numbers, and each description is printed as a hanging indent, and is wrappable. Although it would (probably) be acceptable to just enclose the page in no-wraps, the formatter marked each series of hanging indents as a block quote, and left the headings outside those blocks. This makes the entire page wrappable, which will more closely resemble how it was printed. (See the NOTE for page 231, above.)

Tag the italics and the small-caps, and be careful to find and tag all of the small-caps "M."s, making sure they are in upper-case. The periods belonging to the italicized abbreviations are parts of those abbreviations and go INSIDE the tags.

Also note the two small-cap "D"s in the illustration numbers—for consistency with the all-numeric numbers, the numbers themselves have not been included in the small-cap tags, and, as they are not abbreviations, the ending punctuation is OUTSIDE the tags.


This diagram can be drawn effectively with text. Tag the italics and enclose the drawing in no-wraps. The exact spacing likely will vary, depending on who has drawn it.


The heading reads "INTRODUCTION." and looks very much like a chapter, which makes it a "Major Division," so precede it with four blank lines and leave one blank line between the heading and the rather lengthy chapter summary.

The summary is printed as a hanging indent, so tag it as a block quote. Also tag the small-caps and italics in it.


Tag the italics and small-caps, making sure the "M." is in upper-case.

Move the [Illustration:] to a paragraph break. There are two parts to the caption (the figure identification and the description), so leave a blank line between them to prevent re-wrapping.

We do not mark Greek as italics even though it often appears to be slanted.

The footnote marks are symbols, and the proofers replaced all of them with asterisks. We replace those asterisks with "A", "B", etc., in sequence, matching the anchors to the references.


Tag the italics and small caps. "Ed." is an abbreviation, so the period goes INSIDE the tags.

See the "Greek" and "footnote" comments for page 235, above.

The verse in the footnote is formatted like verse anywhere else: enclose it in no-wraps. None of the lines are indented, so just left-justify all of them.


Tag the illustrations. There are no paragraph breaks on this page, so move both of the tagged illustrations to the very top of the page, precede each one with an asterisk to signal that the post-processor will have to move them, and follow each one with a blank line as a separator.

Tag the italics and small-caps. the "M." in each illustration caption should be in upper-case, and "Ed." is an abbreviation, so the period goes inside the tags.

The text at the bottom of the page is the continuation of a footnote, so enclose it in a [Footnote: ] tag, remove the generated # sign (there's no footnote reference in the continuation) and precede the left bracket with an asterisk to show that it is a continuation.


Just a few easy-to-find italics on this page; how did something without snares slip into this Self-Evaluation project?


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

The plate number at the top and the page number near the bottom are right-justified, so enclose each of them in no-wraps. Tag "Plate III." as small-caps (not just "Plate"); it's like a small-caps "Fig. 3." and both of them are like italicized dates: the entire identification is the unit. The same reasoning applies to "Page 32."

Put "Page 32." on a line of its own, even though it's printed on the same line as part of the caption: it's certainly not part of the caption.


Align the data in the table and enclose it in no-wraps. The name of the table is wrappable, so leave it outside those no-wraps. The formatter preceded it with two blank lines, treating it like a Section and helping to separate it from regular text. Using just one blank line would not be an error unless the Project Comments / Discussion requested two blank lines.

The "M."s in the heading are in small-caps. We format tables for their Plain Text final versions, and in Plain Text, small-caps become untagged all-caps, so you will not allow extra space for such tags when aligning the columns. The easiest way to do alignment in this case is to not add the small-caps tags until after the table has been aligned.

Although the table has a double border, just use a single border, and use only hyphens (not underscores or macrons) and vertical bars; and indicate all intersections with simple plus signs.
