Notes on FontsEdit
Do not attempt to replicate the multiple fonts used throughout the work. Use the standard font for the section headings (not blackletter) and for the body text. Also, do not italicise the entire work. The particular font chosen by the publisher is a sloping one, but that does not mean that italicised text was meant.
The last three plates should be done as text rather than images. However, they should be kept as simple as possible rather than the 8 or 9 Latin fonts and sizes that on those pages alongside the multiple non-Latin texts. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 18:44, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
- @Beeswaxcandle: I am seeing evidence of the true equivalents to the usual uses for italics. See page 30. There are two instances here where the font is distinctly changed from the usual sloping one to a different font, actually looking like normal italics. See 'manuscripts' and "Bourgeois Gentilhomme" on that page. I've see the same font shuffle on other pages. I would suggest these are really italicized, and should be formatted that way. Comments?

- straight quote marks and apostrophes (because this is a shared work, not an individual contribution)
- dashes are em-dashes (—), not en-dashes (–)
