The source that was used for this play should be cited. Webbbbbbber 17:12, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

It's not the quarto of 1609, nor the Folio of 1623, which are the two standard sources. The Arden Shakespeare 2nd edition also differs (though I'm not sure exactly how that was composed as I haven't read the introduction yet). Compare the opening of Act 1 Scene 3 in this copy of the play to the one at Open Source Shakespeare, which matches the Arden one: [1]. There are certain aspects missing here that were poured over in 19th century criticism, at the very least. I think it will have to be changed if the source can't be found, or its authority proved.
