15.5 Quoted or Displayed Material [II.10.f, g]
When quoted matter, i.e., passages taken verbatim from another source, or other
displayed material such as a facsimile of a handwritten note or a sign, is set off in print by
blank lines, special typefaces, or indented margins, the following rules should be
- If quoted material appears in both quotation marks and a distinctive typeface, such
as italics, in braille the quotation marks are retained but the italics are omitted unless
they are needed for emphasis or distinction.
- If displayed material is printed only in italics or another distinctive typeface, it
should be brailled in italics.
- Leave one blank line before and after quoted or displayed material. When
material that must be followed by a blank line ends on either line 24 or 25, leave a
blank line at the top of the next page following the running head.
- Use normal margins and paragraph indentation for quoted or displayed
material, regardless of how it appears in print.
- Follow print for capitalization. However, it is suggested that fully capitalized
passages of more than one sentence be italicized and normal capitalization used.
