If I recall correctly, we were instructed to leave the line breaks in the case of poetry. I don't know what effect the tabs might have, but if they occur at the beginning and end of lines within the poem I would think that they should be replaced with line breaks. I proofed some poetry books before I learned about any of these things. I thought they were extremely boring, but they were also easy proofs. Now that I have learned that it is more complicated than I thought and on top of that they are still boring, I leave them alone. I hope my earlier proofs of them that are now in the collection turned out okay.

Hi all,I'm working on a book that has a fair amount of poetry. I'm thinking replacing tabs may not be wise. What about when I go through the 27 step process to replace carriage returns/line breaks? Will this interfere with any of the poetry or is there an alternative for books for poetry to remove line breaks?Thanks, Lori To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxput the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
