Most of the page is in a smaller font than the first two lines, and separated from the other text by extra whitespace, so this is a classic block quote. Enclose it in those tags.

Also tag the italics and the footnote.


The first few lines on this page are in a smaller font than the rest, and it ends with a signature, so of course this is a letter. Enclose it in block quotes.

To save space, the printer placed the signature on the last line of text. There's no easy way for us to keep it there and also indicate that it should be right-justified, so the formatter moved it to a line of its own and enclosed it in no-wraps. Since the main text ended with a comma, the signature isn't a complete sentence, so the ending period goes OUTSIDE the tags.


Three pieces of correspondence, each in a smaller font than the main text; you have to read some of it to know which is which. Enclose each correspondence in block quotes.

Tag the italics and tag the footnote.


Similar to page 362, above.

The "£" is a currency symbol and is not in italics; it's just the style of the symbol that's slanted.


Ah, a page from Punch. There are special rules for Punch, which are discussed HERE (right-click and open in new tab or window) in a separate Wiki article that everyone should review before working on a Punch project. One of the most important rules is that we do not use Chapter (4 blank lines) or Section (2 blank lines) breaks. Instead, we precede each element on the page with a thought break. A new article begins at the top of the page, so the first thought break precedes it. There are two double-horizontal rules in the second column to indicate new elements; use a <tb> for each of them.

The illustrations on this page are in-line, so to speak, rather than in framed boxes, so don't precede them with <tb>'s; just move them to nearby paragraph breaks. The second one is next to poetry, so rather than interrupt the poem, move the illustration to one end or the other of it.

Format the poetry normally: enclose it in no-wraps, rejoin the overflow lines with the main lines just above them, then replicate the indentation using an even number of spaces.

There are a lot of italics and small-caps on this page, so make a couple of careful passes to find and tag all of them. When doing so, two more special Punch-only rules apply: (1) match the scan for "?" and "!": if they are italicized, put them inside the tags, regardless of context; if they're not italicized, leave them outside; (2) possessive s'es at the end of small-caps always go inside the tags, even if they look like regular s'es; but Note: the "s" in "Mabel's" (near the bottom of the second column) clearly looks like a regular "s" and does not look like the ones used elsewhere on this page for small-caps. In an actual project, it probably would be advisable to ask about it in the project discussion, pointing out that, the Punch Guidelines notwithstanding, this one really seems to be different.

The first article on the page is a book review. It's not printed differently from other text, so it shouldn't be enclosed in block quotes. The signature line at its end is right-justified, so enclose it in no-wraps.


A chapter is a Major Division, so precede its heading with four blank lines. Separate the elements of the heading by one blank line, and precede the text body with two blank lines.

In this case, the body begins with a section heading. The requirement for two blank lines after the chapter heading and two blank lines before a section heading are merged, so leave a total of only two.

The chapter summary is in a smaller font and is printed as a hanging indent, so enclose it in block quotes. Make sure the em-dashes are clothed, even though that's a proofing responsibility.

The regnal numbers (e.g., "XII.") are in small-caps and when followed by periods are treated like abbreviations, so the periods go INSIDE the tags.


Tag the sidenote and move it to the break just above the paragraph to which it belongs. The regnal numbers (e.g., "XI.") in the main text and the footnote are in small caps. They are treated like abbreviations, so the periods go INSIDE the tags.

The regnal number in the sidenote, however, is not in small-caps; it's just all-caps.


See formatting of regnal numbers on pages 366 and 367, above.


Tag the sidenotes and move them to the breaks just above the paragraphs to which they belong. However, since the first paragraph began on the previous page, its sidenote should be moved to the very top of the page and the left bracket should be preceded by an asterisk to signal that it must be moved in post-processing.

Leave two blank lines before the Section heading. ("§" is the symbol for "Section.") Tag the small caps regnal number; the period is part of the abbreviation and goes INSIDE the tags. Note that in the sidenote, the regnal number is not small-caps, but all-caps.


Parts of this page are similar to 367, above. The footnote contains a simple list; enclose it in no-wraps and, within reason, try to make it look like the original, but also try to keep it under 75 characters in width. The line ending with "Ludovico" is 76 characters, so it would have been better to move that word to the next line. Otherwise, the post-processor will have to do it.
