[Forum] RE: Punctuating dialogue and its translation
I wouldn't put the translation into italics though.  Note that in the link I gave you, the translations were not italicized. Also, just to confuse the issue further, here is another section you should take a look at: https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/book/ed17/part2/ch07/psec053.html  I don't

[Forum] RE: Italicized or Bold
I agree with Pixna about not italicizing great swaths of text. It's used for emphasis, which according to CMOS should be limited to only a few words at a time and not very often. But I also like the idea of using a "soft" bold for the keywords. Saves the student from having to highlight all the

[Forum] What I would do ...
There is no general "U.S. style." Various U.S. style guides are all across the board on a number of style issues. If you are following CMOS for the most part, I would omit the "the" in the periodical titles. However, for clarity and better flow, I would add "the" (lowercase, not italicized) before t

[Forum] RE: Should File Names be italicized in a Document?
If you are looking for a "rule" to support italics, you probably won't find one, at least not here. But if you want file names to be more distinguishable in your documents, then by all means ital them. Better yet, use boldface. You are totally allowed to make up your own rules. I know lots of editor

[Forum] Italicize a Whole Possessive Proper Noun?
Here is the sentence: [quote]Did I just hear a complaint come out of [i]Amy Cooper's[/i] mouth?"[/quote] The author would like the emphasis on "Amy Cooper," and I agree with that. But what I'm unsure about is whether or not the 's is also italicized. I've looked in my book and online, but h

[Forum] "ex post" - italics or not
Hello Well-worn Latin expressions, like "per se", are considered sufficiently part of English not to warrant italics -- but what about "ex post"? I hardly ever come across it, and I'm wondering if it's sufficiently rare to be italicized.

[Forum] RE: Italicized dialogue, quotation marks
When there are a lot of instances, I think it's distracting to switch back and forth depending on context as CMOS suggests, and I dislike the look of ital quote marks. So I would probably lean toward keeping the quote marks roman if possible. Might work, might not.

[Forum] Colognes, Perfumes, and Fragrances
Do names of colognes and fragrances go inside quote marks? Or are they italicized or written in straight roman type? [b]Calvin Klein's "Eternity" and Ralph Lauren's "Polo" are classic fragrances. [/b] Thx.

[Forum] Title of legal brief
Example of title of legal brief [i]Campbell v Sunlake Recreational Services LLC [/i] The author has it italicized in the manuscript. I don't think it should be. And also I believe there should be a period after the v (v.) and a comma between Services and LLC. Do y'all agree? Look forward to in
