[bksvol-discuss] Re: question re underlined words

Ah, well.

Are the indented verses indented? 

It's too bad, because although most of the time it
probably doesn't make a difference, in some books it
does, to indicate thoughts as opposed to what's being
spoken. Also, in sentences, it indicates stress or
emphasis on a particular word, although that sometimes
can be "heard" in the reading. Sometimes when I'm
validating, in reading a line the fact that a word
feels as if it should be stressed causes me to look at
the book, and sure enough, it is italicized.
