The page is a mix of quotations in smaller font and essay in normal size font (still tiny, but normal for the magazine). Unless you happened to have formatted the preceding page of this magazine, you'll have to look over the entire page to determine that the first couple of paragraphs need to be in block quotes. The other passages in smaller font also will need to be tagged with block quotes.

Also, there are some italics scattered throughout the page, and forming the habit of making multiple passes to look for different kinds of things will make it easier to find everything that needs to be formatted.

Enclose the verse in no-wraps, left-justified.

This appears near the top of the page:

       St Just replied, 'Do it if you

The italicized text is a complete sentence within another complete sentence, and the two sentences share one ending period. In cases like this, we treat the period as belonging with the inner sentence and place it inside the italics tags, like this:

       St Just replied, '<i>Do it if you

The single-quotation marks are containers for what is being quoted. They are not part of the quotation, so they go outside the italics tags.


The ultimate test of the careful formatter: a dense page of small print, with just one italicized I hiding in it.


This one's a good test of the patient formatter: lots and lots of italics, mixed in with upright text.

The two headings begin new Sections, so precede each of them with two blank lines. Both are in mixed-case small-caps.


Again, lots of italics, mixed in with upright text.

The in-line headings are complete sentences, so the periods go INSIDE the italics tags.


Similar to page 344, above.


The first paragraph is in a smaller font than the rest of the page, so enclose it in block quotes. The paragraph began on the previous page, so there should be no blank line before or after the opening block quote tag.

The in-line headings are complete sentences, so the periods go INSIDE the italics tags.


Similar to page 346, above. In addition, the last paragraph is in a smaller font and needs to be enclosed in block quotes.

Some of the numbers are boldface, and since they are on lines with normal-weight text, they need to be tagged. Two of them are part of an in-line list, so each needs to be tagged separately, with the comma outside the tags.


Most of this page is in a smaller font, and the context shows that those passages are quotations, so they're the ones to be enclosed in block quotes.


Poetry. Enclose the entire page in no-wraps, indent the beginning of the second verse to match the original, using an even number of spaces.

Precede the line numbers with 6 spaces to signal that they should be right-justified.


An Index is a Major Division, so precede its heading with four blank lines and separate the heading from the body with two blank lines.

Enclose the entire text body in no-wraps.

"PAGE" is right-justified, so leave 6 spaces before it.

Leave a blank line between each main entry. Indent the sub-entries by 2 spaces and single-space them. Don't leave 6 spaces before the page numbers even though they're right-justified in the original; just format it like a normal Index.

Normally, when the first word of each section of an Index is in small-caps, the others are not, and in those cases, we don't use small-caps even for the first word. However, many entries in this Index are in small-caps, and it isn't clear whether the first entry was done that way because it's the first entry or because it's in the same category as the other small-cap entries, so it's safest to just tag it.

Notice how it's necessary to tag "<sc>Absorption</sc> of <sc>HEAT</sc>" ... after noticing that "of" isn't in small-caps, that is. "Absorption" is mixed-case, so the small-caps tag will let it be formatted correctly, but "HEAT" has to be in all-caps so that it'll be formatted in the same height as the lower-case letters in "Absorption".
