Texts and notes should be typed on one side only of A4 paper, with 30 double-spaced lines on each full page. Please try to avoid ending lines with a hyphen. Pages should be numbered in complete sequence, without added 'a' or 'W pages. The title of the contribution, the name of the author and any subheadings in the text, should be in upper- and lower-case letters, on separate lines, and not be underlined. Please leave additional space above and below to aid recognition. Subheadings should ideally be of no more than 2 grades. Each should be marked 'A' or 'B' to indicate its grade. The opening paragraph, and the first paragraph after any subheading, should not be indented; others should be indented 5 spaces. No additional space should be left between paragraphs. Quotations should be in English, and appear in single inverted commas. Quo? tations appearing in the course of these should be in double inverted commas. Longer quotations - of about 100 words or 10 typed lines - should be preceded and followed by an empty line and without inverted commas. Quotations in the course of these should be in single inverted commas. Words omitted in the course of a quotation should be indicated by 3 full stops. If the end of a sentence is omitted, 4 full stops should be used. Square parentheses should be placed round comments inserted by the author in a quotation. In matters of spelling, the Concise Oxford Dictionary is followed, with a prefer? ence for V spellings of words ending in 'ize\ For abbreviations, capitalization and italicization, Hart's Rules should be consulted. Dates should be written as '27 April 1999'. All measurements should be given in metric form, unless they are quoted directly from a source. Notes are now printed at the end of each contribution, making them relatively inaccessible, so contributors should include in them bibliographical material only, and normally not use them for remarks which, however tangential or tent? ative, could be included even parenthetically in the main text. Their position in the text should be indicated by a complete sequence of superior numerals (i.e. 1 or 2) without additional 'a' or 'b' notes and without parentheses, ringing, etc. The numerals should be typed after any punctuation. Type the notes themselves at the end of the contribution. They should be arranged and punctuated as follows: 343</page><page sequence="14">Notes for contributors 1 R. D.
