Subject: Journals, Old and Electronic
Thanks to those who responded to my posting offering old journals.
A side note is that electronic versions may differ from hard copies in
many ways. I recently compared two versions of an article on _Edward II_
in _Studies in English Literature_ (1999). Most annoying, the electronic
version prints a long passage of verse as prose. No italic type is used,
so one must read carefully to determine if a sentence refers to the
title character or the play. Capitalization in the titles varies; there
is no indentation of paragraphs or quotations. At one point, "Edward II"
becomes "Edward H"--no doubt a scanner failure.
