Curly punctuation[edit]

Long-standing approach has been that asking people to do curly punctuation is unnecessary, as it is not evident to many people, and then we end up with a hotchpotch through a work. We cover this in Wikisource:Style guide#Formatting. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:36, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. However, the Hound of Baskervilles is not completely proofread, and it is no more effort for me to curl the braces while I proofread the pages and fixes the other things (errors in the text, dashes, paragraph breaks etc.) I have found about 1 correction per page, on average, so far (other than the braces), so I hope I'm making meaningful contribution here. The Style guide states that the rules are flexible, so I hope my behaviour can be tolerated, for this one book at least. Juxtap (talk) 02:11, 6 July 2012 (UTC)


Excellent work, Juxtap, your book is now completely proofread and completely validated. The book naturally is an excellent one considering the author. The images were worked over to a perfection in clarity and color from the originals. You chose well and all you have done is much appreciated. Thank you so very much for that interesting read as I validated it. Kindest regards, Maury ( William Maury Morris II (talk) 01:39, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
