TITLE: Against Ierome Osorius
Q.: On the attached image ( image 36), we found that there are three (3) [type faces] appearing within the paragraph, these are roman, italicized and old format [i.e., "textura" or blackletter] text.
A.: Both of these options are legitimate; which you use depends on which you are most comfortable using. Option (b) is the easiest, but option (a) provides us with the most information.
That is, we like option (a), but here are a few of the consequences of using it:
In that case, the old-format type (within the quotation) has to be marked with <HI>, like this:
<Q>You haue made fru|strate <HI>(sayth he)</HI> the commaundement of God, through your owne traditions.</Q>
This answer is basically a restatement of the rule: "<Q>s are used ... for block quotations ... [including] lengthy quotations that are set off by the use of other typographic cues, such as (if unambiguously marking a block quotation) a change of typeface.... If you're not sure if a block of text is a <Q>, simply record the appearance of the text (using, e.g. <P> and <HI>)."
