The extra whitespace near the top of the page is a thought break <tb>; the text on both sides of it is the same size and has the same margins, so neither one is a block quote.

The references in the footnotes are in italics; the first footnote contains only a reference, and is a complete sentence for formatting purposes, so the period goes INSIDE the tags. In the second and third footnotes, the authors' names are not in italics, so the references are not complete sentences, and their periods go OUTSIDE the tags.


An Index page. Follow the Guidelines' rules for formatting an Index: enclose the entire page in no-wraps, precede each main entry with a blank line, split any sub-entries at the semi-colons, start each sub-entry on a new line, indented by two spaces, and not preceded by blank lines.

When formatting an index, always be on the alert for See in italics, and for words in small-caps. All of the entries on this page begin with the same letter, but when the first letter changes, leave two blank lines to mark the separation, and if the first word using the new letter is in small-caps, but the other entries are not, do not tag the word as small-caps ... unless it's a proper name AND the index uses small-caps for all proper names.

Index entries often refer to other Index entries; the two on this page (see Whorls.) and (See Vases.) are used slightly differently and need to be formatted slightly differently. The first one (see Whorls.) is part of the "with Aryan symbols" sub-entry, so it goes on the same line as the rest of that sub-entry. The second one (See Vases.) is a separate sub-entry under the "Terra-cottas" entry, so it goes on it's own line, indented by 2 spaces. The proper way to handle these references will not always be obvious; sometimes, it'll be necessary to examine the context in which they occur. The next example has two similar situations.


See the explanation for page 252, above, particularly with regard to the See entries. Here, (See Terra-cottas.) is a sentence of its own, at the end of what must be a list of sub-entries, so it's a separate sub-entry. However, (see Inscriptions) is part of the sub-entry "with inscriptions" and goes on the same line.

<Note that the Vases entry has a final dot in the image (following "in the Palace of Priam, 334, 342"): this has been missed in Proofreading.>


A simple table. The caption for the table is wrappable, but the table is not, so enclose only the table in no-wraps.

Try to make the table look like the original, and if possible, don't let it be wider than 74 characters ... not a problem with this one.

If a table has row and/or column dividers, use hyphens for the horizontal lines (not underscores or macrons), vertical bars for the vertical lines, and plus signs at their intersections.


A simple list, not a table; just enclose it in no-wraps. If the proofers hadn't changed it from two columns to one, we do so during formatting.


Just a few in-line italics on this page.


A couple of words in italics, and "B.C." in small-caps. Make sure "B.C." is in upper-case as well as tagged.


The extra whitespace near the top of the page is a thought break <tb>.


Just a few words in italics; the ones that are consecutive are an in-line list, so tag each one separately. The comma is a separator and goes OUTSIDE the tags; the question mark applies to the sentence, not to the word it follows, so it also goes OUTSIDE the tags.


Tag the italics and small-caps; the italics in parentheses in the footnotes are complete sentences, so the periods go INSIDE the tags.

The footnotes are numeric, so just make sure their numbers match the anchors in the text.
