Gedi Typing song title & punctuation-national customs (52* d) RE: Typing song title & punctuation-national customs 18 Jun 09

What a fascinating discussion this is.

As a printer I've always known the full stop/period to be referred to as a 'full point', although not sure why this should be (printers have lots of strange terminology).   Not aware of any other guidelines re song headings but then I'm neither a typesetter or proof reader.

Personally I've always followed the "capitalise the first letter of each line" rule, but I dropped the comma at the end of the line years ago.

Folknacious, I love point 9 in your post above. That's what I call a good reason to spell something a certain way.
