Subject:     Some Corrections and a Request


Dear Subscribers:


A few administrative matters regarding last Friday’s Newsletter.


In Alex Huang’s announcement about the Special Issue of Shakespeare (The British Shakespeare Association: Volume 9, Issue 3, September 2013), on Global Shakespeares, the link in the Newsletter did not work properly.


That announcement can be found in two places.


In the Current Postings it is at 




It is also in the Announcements tab at http://shaksper.net/announcements by scrolling down past the latest announcement.


The second correction includes a plea to submitters.


It has been called to my attention that there are many passages in Gerald E. Downs’ “Spanish Tragedy Additions” posting at http://shaksper.net/current-postings/29645-spanish-tragedy-additions that are, in fact, quotations from Brian Vickers, indented text, and bolded text that are not obviously formatted as such. 


These formatted items were in Downs’ submission to me, but I inadvertently stripped them out with a macro I use to insure that digests that come to me a various fonts and layouts appear consistently in postings and Newsletters.


I apologize to Gerald E. Downs for not reproducing his submission accurately and I have corrected it in the archive. It can be found here: http://shaksper.net/current-postings/29645-spanish-tragedy-additions


My request until I come up with a macro that does not strip these sorts of formatting is this, PLEASE treat me as the SLOW LEARNER I am and if you have extensive formatting within your post, ALERT me to it.
