Notes:

Wikisource templates:

Wikipedia templates:

  • Citing Encyclopædia articles: {{Cite EB9}}
  • Poster for linking to Encyclopædia articles: {{EB9 Poster}}

Authors for some articles are not indicated by initials, and are only found in the "List of Contributors" at the end of the index volume 25.

Notes:

  1. Unlike EB1911, EB9 has doubly fine print, as for example when the references for an article fall at the end of a fine print section. The double effect can be achieved by nesting another {{EB1911 Fine Print}} invocation within an already open invocation.

Margin headings[edit]

One of the challenges of implementing the Wikisource edition of EB9 will be dealing with the margin headings (used as shoulder headings are in EB1911). I propose a template called "EB9 Using Margin Headings" which would enclose the entire article, exclusive of the header, and just provide margins. Another template called "EB9 Margin Heading", much like {{EB1911 Shoulder Heading}}, could then insert the headings where needed. When transclusion is used, the first template may not be necessary, since the page margins are created to accommodate page numbers. Other thoughts are solicited.

After further thought, I think I will call it "EB9 Margin Note", but treat it like {{EB1911 Shoulder Heading}}, that is embed it in the text, though probably not with bold italic formatting, but plain text, possibly smaller, surrounded by a border. I think having the note is more important than having it look like the original precisely. The problem I see with the original format is I think it requires hyphenation to keep it from overlapping adjacent body text. Bob Burkhardt (talk) 00:03 and 12:25, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
