Odd Bits


1. emphasized words and foreign words that appear in italics should be tagged <EMPH> as in <P>I called Taff <EMPH>stupid</EMPH> because (see p. 106)

2. titles of books should be tagged <TITLE> as in <P> E. R. "Teddy" Evans, 31; Lieutenant, Royal Navy; wrote <TITLE>South With Scott</TITLE>; became Admiral (see p. 13)

3. names of ships will by treated using the <NAME> tag

4. all other italics used, such as for titles of poems and for Scott's journal entries should be ignored

Indented Lines

We will use REND="indent" to move lines of poetry a few spaces to the right, as in <L N="6" REND="indent">I walked up this glacier</L> (see p. 81).

We will use REND="right" to align a line of poetry with the right margin as in <L N="1" REND="right">Kathleen     can you hear me</L> (see p. 135).


Use the <NOTE> tag to mark up a note. The number of the note is identical to that in the text. Don't mark up the asterisk or other note-sign in the text.

<DIV TYPE="journal" ID="he004">
<P>December 2.—Victor's shot. Bowers silent at hoosh*. Horse meat.</P>
<NOTE N="*">*Thick camp-soup with a base of pemmican</NOTE>

(see p. 37)

Dashes and Hyphens

To mark a long dash which is usually typed as -- use —
To mark a hyphen or single short dash, just use the ASCII character -


To mark the degree sign for farenheit or centigrade, use the character entity deg between an ampersand and a semi-colon as in <P>February 28/29—Last night -40 ° F. (see p. 124)
