Part 1 Chapter 4 of Bela 8 corrected

While I realize I'm not the most perfect, error-free typist around, it still annoys me when I find gross errors in my submissions. Aside from the occasional wrong word usage and simple typos, I also have a love/hate relationship with the underscore character.

For those of you who've been directed to various educational files (thank you, Lazeez), the underscore character _ causes the text immediately afterward to become italicized. To return to normal text in that same paragraph, simply insert another _ then continue typing, or begin another paragraph. Much easier and less finger-contorting than using "(i)" and "(/i)" all the time.

In addition, using {_ will italicize your text for as far as you type, including into the next paragraph, until you tell it to return to normal text by typing _}.

While I was reviewing Murielle and Miranda's adventures to find a spot where Lisa and the 'M' twins unknowingly interacted, I discovered I had forgotten a _}, which meant the entire chapter was italicized.

Anyway, I fixed it, so if someone's already downloaded it, be aware that the corrected version is available now. That's what I get for not double-checking my edits.

Best,
