Headlines and Titles of Works
Q. I am quoting from a document that has a lot of words in all caps, for emphasis. In my report the quote appears as a block quote, and I feel that I should affirm that the capitalization is in the original, not added by me. Should I make this affirmation with a parenthetical comment, or should I just leave it alone?
A. By all means, use a parenthesis to shift the embarrassment to where it belongs. “(Emphasis in original)” is the standard disclaimer.
