old character, footnote[edit]

{{helpme}} I need help with the following two issues: 1. I am editing an old book from 1830 when a character was used which does not exist any more. It was the 'letter o with diaeresis and acute' and has been replaced by 'ő'. It is similar to the 'letter u with diaeresis and acute' which is still available: ǘ. I am wondering where I could get hold of this character.

I could not find one code for it but I was able to recompose it: ö́. Edit this page to see the HTML code for it. Hope this is good enough for you. This link [1] is quite helpful with this sort of stuff.--Mpaa (talk) 11:30, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

2. If a footnote is carried over to the next page what is the procedure?

Thanks in advance

We also have {{right}} for right alignment. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:53, 5 February 2012 (UTC)

Combination multipage and partial transclusion[edit]

{{helpme}} I am bit lost and need some clarification. I first went to the page (page 50) which needs to be split where Chapter1 ends and Chapter2 starts. On the top of the page I put <section begin=name of the chapter1 /> then text and where the text needs to be split I put <section end=name of the chapter1 /> than <section begin=name of the chapter2 /> the rest of the text, and at the bottom of the page I put <section end=name of the chapter2 /> and then I used <pages index="file name.djvu" from=20 to=50 fromsection="name of chapter1" tosection="name of chapter2" />

I am obviously doing something wrong. Please clarify. Thanks.

Hi. I try to fix it, if I understand what you were after. Let me know if this is not OK. fromsection refers to the section is the starting page you want to start transclusion from, while end section indicates last section you want to include in the last page. See Help:Proofread#Combination_multipage_and_partial_transclusion.
Few additions: use <nowiki>Insert non-formatted text here</nowiki> (note that I had to insert the code twice to make the second visible …) to insert wiki mark-up to be rendered as text, otherwise it is interpreted when you save (see what I have added in your post); in general, it is not necessary to follow indentation at line start when proofreading, it is done only with poem or special cases; when there is an hyphenated word in the text, the hyphen and new line char need to be removed, as it is not said that in the transcluded page, that word will still be at the end of the line.--Mpaa (talk) 20:54, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Poetry of the Magyars[edit]

Hi Orsb,

thanks for your contributions about this book. But you should use subpages for the sections of the work. Some weeks ago I noticed that you had created a page named "Preface (Poetry of the Magyars)" and I moved it to "Poetry of the Magyars/Preface". Please use this method ("Poetry of the Magyars/name of the chapter") for all the sections of the work. You can move the pages you have already created by clicking the "Move" button at the top of the page. If you are not able, leave me a message and I'll do this.
