Altho' He Has Left Me[edit]

I would like to address some concerns I have with you method of annotations. You may want to read the draft atWikisource:Annotations as a starter. The current consensus is that while it is acceptable to use hypertext annotations in a the main copy of a text, more traditional annotations are only acceptable on a separate copy when the original has already been made available on Wikisource. This does not apply to works originally printed with footnotes (i.e The Wasteland) or particular versions with footnotes (i.e if something like Bright's Anglo-Saxon Reader used footnotes), if that is the case here please accept my apologies.

One of the main concerns (especially with poetry) is that these marks in the text disrupt the reading. Although and argument can be made that wikilinks which change the color could also lead to a false emphasis being given in a reading, the availability of a printable version makes a pure copy one link away. There was also consensus in the past to make a more prominent feature which would change the color of links to match the rest of the text, but the technical development was never followed through on. I hope you have found Wiksiource to be a nice hiding spot!--BirgitteSB 18:05, 9 March 2007 (UTC)

Yes thanks. I supplied some notes for the non-Scots reader, but I didn't integrate them into the text at all - someone else did that. I'm happy to work out how it should have been done.--Doc glasgow 19:15, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
