How-to[edit]

The process for this Proofread project is to copy the text from Project Gutenberg, splitting it up into the pages corresponding to each image, and if it matches .. click the yellow radio button near the save button, and then click save. John Vandenberg (chat) 16:51, 4 December 2008 (UTC)


Indents?[edit]

Greetings, all. This is my first proofread, or edit of any kind. The text as shown uses indents at the beginning of paragraphs, but I've noticed that some validated pages have been using a space inbetween paragraphs instead. Which is correct? Specifically in the bits of prose which are in paragraphs, not poetry which is indented deliberately. --Astrodude85 (talk) 22:20, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Paragraphs should be separated by a blank line, and if a paragraph begins at the top of the page, add {{blank line}} as the first line.
I have validated Page:Our American Holidays - Christmas.djvu/133; you can see paragraph markers in the left margin to indicate where a new paragraph begins. John Vandenberg (chat) 23:21, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the response; wilco. As a matter of curiosity, is there somewhere where there is a short guide to the rules and nuances of formatting?Astrodude85 (talk) 20:45, 18 December 2008 (UTC)


Poem markers[edit]

Hi,

I have removed <poem> because it adds lines between pages when we do transclusions. So I have used this:

:::
:::
:::

You can see what I mean here, with the result here. Is it all right?- --Zyephyrus (talk) 18:48, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

On these pages I have used only
:
for the first poem, and I have indented the second poem with & nbsp;. This solution can be transcluded, <poem> can't because it adds lines.---Zyephyrus (talk) 16:43, 23 December 2008 (UTC)


Table of contents[edit]

Here is the template that we might create for this kind of TOC:

Table of contents
Number Title Page
XXIII. NEIGHBORS OF THE CHRIST NIGHT . . Nora Archibald Smith 24
XXIV. CRADLE HYMN . . Isaac Watts 25

Next time we can try this.---Zyephyrus (talk) 15:56, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
