Page-breaks have been removed, along with page numbers and column titles

End-of-line hyphenations have been removed and the previously hyphenated word placed at the end of the first text line. The text itself has been the main guide for keeping or removing the hyphens, and in some cases the Centenary Edition has been consulted

Small capitals in names have been replaced by lower-case letters. In those cases where small caps are used to denote extra emphasis, they have been marked up accordingly

Text in (? blackletter) used mainly for song titles has almost always been changed to ordinary text

- - placed around words that are italicized in the text

= = placed around words with extra emphasis -- small caps in the text

{} placed around "The Wardour Manuscript," which according to the printed text should be in "some emphatic mode of printing."

<oe> = oe ligature

<ae> = ae ligature

<a^> = a circumflex

If the footnote comes at the end of a paragraph, the first line of the following paragraph is indented two spaces, as usual

In Chapter XXIX an additional note to a footnote was placed at the end of the chapter. This note-note has been kept where it occurred but the reference to the original page has been replaced by **

In the printed text, endnotes appeared at the end of each chapter. In this electronic edition all the endnotes appear together at the end of the last chapter of the text

The page numbers of the original footnotes have been replaced by capital letters in alphabetic order
