Edward III (Drama)
Encoding format: SGML
Hyphenation has been retained when a word is broken over two lines
# appears in those situations where hyphenation has been retained because of a word breaking over two lines in the copy text and the word in question would most probably have had a hyphen anyway -- eg. lily-#livered man.
# (or sometimes £) is also used to distinguish some common homographs -- eg. "#will" (i.e. legacy) is distinguished from "will" (auxiliary verb)
When "carry-back" or "carry-forward" is used, the text line is reconstructed with the part that has been removed seperated off by a | (vertical bar symbol). In such cases indentation is removed, and all spacing is normalised
The full upper and lower case character set is used, with all spelling and typographical variations carefully preserved, with the exception of long and short s which are not distinguished. I/J and U/V are preserved
