4.8  C.  Footnotes, Superscripts and Subscripts, and Sidebars

Go back to:  4. Proofreading a Book


                1)  Footnotes:  Don't delete them
                2)  Superscripts:  Retain them where possible
                3)  Sidebars:  Where to place them on the page


1)  Footnotes:  Don't delete them

       Please enclose each footnote in square brackets.


2)  Superscripts:  Retain them where possible

       a.  Retain superscripts where possible.
       b.  In cases where the OCR software has pushed superscripts up onto the line above where they
            should be, please drop superscripts into the text line where they should occur.  This can be done
            through a "global drop".
       c.  Also, be on the lookout for when the OCR has omitted superscripts entirely.


3)  Sidebars:  Where to place them on the page

       Where should a sidebar be placed on the page?  Please use your discretion and place a sidebar
       either:
       -  below the body of text on the same page,
          However, if page numbers occur in this book as "footers" (at the bottom of each page), make
          sure the line containing the page number is the last line on the page.

          or

       -  within the body of text on the same page, somewhere between two paragraphs where you
          think it least disrupts the flow of thought.


       If the content of a sidebar is exactly identical to a passage in the text in the body of the page, that
       sidebar can be deleted entirely.
