Copyright notice. A Major Division, so precede it with four blank lines. Enclose the text in no-wraps and leave it left-justified.

Since this is not intended to be wrappable text, the second line is in all-caps, not small-caps.

The second line of the printer's information at the bottom is in mixed-case small-caps and is a complete sentence, so enclose all of it in one pair of tags. We don't tag Black Letter unless the Project Comments request it; the font probably is not available on many eReader devices, and the Guidelines tell us not to use the <f> tag unless the Project Comments request its use.

The formatter chose to include both parts of this page in the same pair of no-wraps, and to leave just one blank line between them. Using two blank lines and/or two pairs of no-wraps would be equally acceptable.


The title of the Drama is a Major Division, so precede it with four blank lines.

An "ACT" is like a chapter, so precede it with another four blank lines. A "SCENE" is like a Section, so we normally would precede it with two blank lines, but since the word "SCENE" is on the same line as the word "ACT," the name of the scene has to stay with it, so just use one blank line to separate them. Finally, leave two blank lines before the start of the text of the Act.

The line of Stage Directions doesn't describe the setting, so it's just part of the body, and it's wrappable. Follow it with one blank line.

This is Metrical Drama (each line begins with a capital letter), and the dialog is not wrappable, so enclose it in no-wraps. There is one overflow line; rejoin it with the main line just above it, as though it was normal poetry.

The characters' names are abbreviated, so the periods go INSIDE the italics tags.


Metrical Drama. Enclose the dialog in no-wraps. The out-of-line Stage Directions mid-page are wrappable and go outside the no-wraps.

The names in these Stage Directions are in small-caps, but the rest of the directions are in italics. Unless the Project Comments say otherwise, close the italics before the small-caps and re-open them afterwards. The ending period goes OUTSIDE the tags because it's a mixed sentence.

The characters' names are abbreviated, so the periods go INSIDE the italics tags.

The Stage Direction near the bottom is in-line but didn't fit, so move it up to the line with which it belongs, and precede it with 6 spaces to signal right-justification. The bracket goes OUTSIDE the italics tags, but the period goes INSIDE, because even one word can be a "complete sentence" for formatting purposes.


Several words and phrases in italics.


The first footnote is a continuation from the previous page (not shown in these examples), so use the [Footnote] button to tag it, then precede the left bracket with an asterisk to signal the continuation, delete the generated space between "Footnote" and the colon, and remove the generated "#" sign. Follow the colon with a space.


In accordance with the PM's [**note], no blank lines were left between paragraphs on this page. It's still poetry, so enclose the entire page in no-wraps, and replicate the indentation of those "paragraph" lines.


A page of poetry. Enclose all of it in no-wraps.

Even though the line numbers were printed on the left, we always show them on the right in eBooks, so move them there and precede them with 6 spaces to signal right-justification.

Not only is there a lot of italics on this page, but a lot of it is for just one letter or one syllable, so considerable extra care is needed to format all of it correctly.

A comment appears at the end of line 357; precede it with 6 spaces to signal right-justification, since that's how it was printed. (The model has 7 spaces, which is OK, too: the Guidelines ask us to leave at LEAST six spaces.)

Line 361 is indented, so replicate that with an even number of spaces.


In accordance with the [**note] from the Project Manager, leave two blank lines before each character's name, and one blank line after.

"Rising." is an in-line Stage Direction. The one word is a complete sentence for formatting purposes, so the period goes INSIDE the italics tags. The brackets form a container for the Stage Direction, but are not themselves directions, so they go OUTSIDE the tags.


The boldface heading at the beginning of the third paragraph is in-line and shares a line with normal text, so tag it. The period goes INSIDE the tag. Also, of course, tag the italics later on.


There are two instances of gesperrt (spaced-out text) on this page. If your eye is not trained to see gesperrt, considerable extra care is needed to find it.
