Tag the illustrations, tag the small-caps "M."s and make sure they are in upper-case. Since there's no paragraph break on the page, move both illustrations to the very top, precede both with an asterisk to alert the post-processor, and follow each of them with a blank line for separation.


Each chapter is a "Major Division," so precede the heading with 4 blank lines, separate the elements of the heading with one blank line, and separate the headings from the body of text with two blank lines.

The chapter description is printed as a hanging indent, so enclose it in block quotes.

The body text begins with the right-justified location / date, so leave two blank lines above that line and enclose it in no-wraps.


Tag the italics (Greek is never in italics even if it looks slanted) and the small-caps; "Ed." is an abbreviation, so the period goes INSIDE the tags.

The footnote uses a symbol instead of a number, so we replace it with "A" in the anchor and the reference. If there were several footnotes, we would use "A", "B", "C" etc.


A simple Table of Contents. It's a "Major Division," so precede it with four blank lines and follow its heading with two blank lines. Enclose everything except the heading in no-wraps, tag the small-caps and italics, and remove any alignment dots. To ensure the page numbers and the word "PAGE" will be right-justified, make sure there are at least six spaces before them.


The verses are paragraphs, so place the [Illustration] tags above them, preceded and followed by blank lines.

Enclose each verse in no-wraps. The last line of each verse begins with a lower-case letter and is deeply indented, suggesting that it's part of the preceding line that overflowed because it didn't fit; so rejoin each one to the preceding line.


Similar to page 245, above. The verse is a paragraph, so the [Illustration] tag could go above or below it.

When there's a choice, does it matter whether it's placed at the top or bottom? Is a "diff" about this an error?

In this case, it doesn't matter, and a "diff" is not an error in any sense of the word. The Guidelines ask us to place illustrations between paragraph breaks (which may occur at the top, bottom, or middle of the page) surrounded by blank lines (no blank line below an illustration at the bottom of the page); and if there are no paragraph breaks on the page, to place the illustrations at the very top of the page, each one preceded by an asterisk and each one followed by a blank line.

Normally, if a page contains just one complete paragraph, as this one does, people would tend to place it at the top (preceded and followed by a blank line). Since more of this particular illustration is below the text than above it, the formatter chose to place the tag below the text.

The main thing to remember from this example is that paragraph breaks at the bottom of a page are valid places for illustrations.


Similar to page 246, above. The verses include indented lines, which we replicate using an even number of spaces.


Just one in-line formatting markup needed here, a word that is in all upper-case small-caps. Tag it and make sure the word is entirely in upper-case; we do not use all lower-case small-caps at DP.


The letter is preceded and followed by extra white space (blank lines) and the lines themselves are closer together than the main text, so enclose the entire letter, including the date and signatures, in block quotes.

The date is right-justified, so enclose it in no-wraps.

The signatures are not wrappable, so enclose them in no-wraps. Note that the line containing the first witnesses' signature is partly in small-caps and partly in regular font, so the period goes OUTSIDE the tags. However, the other witness line is a complete sentence, so the period goes INSIDE the tags.

Matching the indentation for the two witness signatures will make it look neater and more like the original.


Tag the italics and small-caps; the small-caps isn't a complete sentence or an abbreviation, so the period goes OUTSIDE the tags.

Each line of the motto begins with a capital letter, so it's more like verse than prose. We don't want those lines to be rewrapped together, so enclose the motto in no-wraps rather than in block quotes.

The footnote anchor and reference use a number, which we retain. The last word of the footnote is in italics, but the entire sentence is not, so the ending period goes OUTSIDE the tags.
