There seem to be references to footnotes throughout this work, but I have not yet come across any footnotes/endnotes, etc. so far. Perhaps they were in a separate booklet? I don't know... AKA Londonjackbooks 13:09, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

The notes are on pages 98 to 100. — Iain Bell (talk) 11:35, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks... Just came across them! :) AKA Londonjackbooks 14:52, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
When I proofread them, I added the tags #Note-1 though #Note-16 (using {{anchor}}), just in case anyone needed to link to them from another chapter. — Iain Bell (talk) 16:45, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Haven't yet had to do any sort of endnotes here yet, so It'll be a learning experience for me. I'll just have to remember to make note of it instead of asking myself later, "Now, which text did I do such-and-such formatting with?" AKA Londonjackbooks 17:44, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
Pardon: "...which text did [another user] do such-and-such formatting with?..." Londonjackbooks (talk) 18:13, 21 April 2012 (UTC)

Poem tags?[edit]

Do we use <br /> for every line or {{block center|<poem style="font-size:smaller"></poem>}} or <poem></poem> in each page? Isn’t <br /> obsolete? If you prefer to keep it I’ll change the pages 70 and 71 where I have used the tags poem. --Zyephyrus (talk) 20:38, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

I dislike the poem tag for a variety of reasons, which I will write down in one place eventually. For our purposes here, I'd say use <br /> instead... and remove end-of-line spaces, please. Not to mention, the poem tag—when alternating Index pages using the poem tag with other Index pages which use breaks, the rendering in the Main ain't always pretty. I've begun looking at the details of this work as it renders in the Main, and will continue to do so until the work is complete. I am considering this as a learning experience for me, and am thankful it could be used as filler space this month. Thanks to User:Mattwj2002 for the original upload.

Thank you Londonjackbooks, I will correct these pages then. --Zyephyrus (talk) 21:06, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

End poems[edit]

Are there any objections to my combining the poems which finish out the end of the work (beginning here) in a similar manner to what was done here and elsewhere?... The following:

To a Lady weeping.

Weep, daughter of a royal line,
A Sire's disgrace, a realm's decay. . .

almost begs for the poems to be compiled on one Mainspace page... AKA Londonjackbooks 13:49, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
