Formatting

Tharos
Updated:

Hi, finally ready to post Shadow and Light with all the edits and changes I should have made the first time around...now the formatting.

And so my question...

Guidelines state that multiple 'return' wont translate in HTML for scene separation.

So if I was to put '~_~_~_~_~_~' just as it is there, this would translate as scene separation?

Or does it have to extend the full line to the edge of the page?

NB. will be submitting using txt files

You could slip a simple HTML hr tag into the story and get a horizontal line across the page in the output.

Edit: I just saw the last line of your post. Not sure if an HTML tag inside a .txt file works; I'm used to submitting HTML.

There are some help guides and guidelines available

To show a scene change and transition, use a horizontal rule in your text. The way to insert a horizontal rule is to type any combination of '-' (dash), '=' (equal), '*' (asterisk), '_' (underscore), '@', '#', '~' (tilde), '+', '•' (bullet), 'x' and '—' (m-dash) — without the quotes) into your text, between scenes, on a line of its own.

Is that unfair discrimination against the poor neglected '–' (en-dash)?

would that be entitled to US government support because it's a discrimination against a recognised minority, or an allowed discrimination because it isn't listed as a recognised minority?
