Perhaps some indenting to keep the iambic pentameter obvious would be in order?

Line numbering[edit]

Maybe line numbering may improve the text ?

Actually, this line numbering, while certainly thorough, make the play hard to read. While finals week isn't exactly the time for me to do it, any enterprising Wikipedian would do well to only number every five lines, and try to seperate the numbers slightly from the text, or even move them to the opposite side of the page.


Canadian spelling[edit]

Just wondering, why is the source done in Canadian spelling? (I've noticed "honour" a couple times) If there isn't a good enough reason I think we should change it to American English, as the copy from Signet Classic does have the American spelling.--Username314 07:28, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

"Honour" is the English spelling... Shakespeare was English.

These are plays, not books. They're meant to be performed. The spelling is inconsequential; in fact, if you look at the originals, they're spelled completely off of any sort of spelling we would have today.

Why would we use American spelling? Shakespeare wasn't American. Jimp (talk) 18:03, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

Which edition?[edit]

The edition that was used as the source for this play should be cited. Webbbbbbber 22:58, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

From what I can tell, this text seems to be almost exactly the same as the text here: [1]
