Every sentence starts with alpha-numerical reference

$ precedes a proper name

Names consisting of two words have their parts joined together by an underscore (eg $UNITED_STATES)

A single name or title containing a preposition or other common term is divided (eg $JOHN OF $GAUNT) unless the preposition is a foreign one (eg $ROGER_DE_COVERLEY)

The dash is represented by a hyphen with a space after; the hyphen is represented by an = sign; end of line hyphenation is avoided

Italics and underlines are ignored unless they occur in the title of a work, when quotation marks are substituted (eg “THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH”, “$IRENE”)

Single foreign words, as opposed to phrases, clauses and sentences, are prefixed with a plus sign (eg +ENTELECHEIA)
