    Hello,

    I am attaching a copy of the text that is confusing me.  I think the print copy is very poor, so I’ll try to explain my question using the copy as an example.  I don’t think the wording is going to matter.  It starts on a page of its own after the end of the each Chapter.  This (with a different Heading & Body) is present after each Chapter  – always starting on a page of its own.   The 1st 2 lines are Blocked at the margin and state:

    Excerpt from The Official Residents’ Guide to Moon Base Alpha,

    © 2040 by National Aeronautics and Space Administration:

    • – Skipped Line –   –   –
    • FULLY CAPITALIZED HEADING
    • – Skipped Line – –  –
    • Body of the Excerpt

    I am confused as to how to treat this – as an attribution or a source citation?  In either case my question is:  Do I Leave the “Excerpt …” at the beginning, then Skip a line, Center Heading, Skip a line, Begin body of the excerpt – OR – move the “Excerpt …” to follow the body and block it in 6-6 (if it follows a 1-1 blocked paragraph) or in 8-8 (if it follows a 3-1 paragraph that is totally contained on 1 line)?

    If I move it to follow the Body, is there a line skipped after the Body?

    If I change the location of “Excerpt …” I will make note of this on the Transcriber’s Note Page.

    I have used the Training manual, the Code Book, and Braille Formats, but don’t seem to be able to find a solution myself. Thanks in advance for your help.

    I’m sorry this is so ‘wordy’.

    I’ll answer it here since I’m online 🙂

    I believe I would treat this as an epigraph – a short explanation of the text that follows.  Block it in cell 1, leave a blank line, centered heading, blank line, main text.

    Thank you so much.  This makes more sense than what I was trying to do.

    You folks are really APPRECIATED.

    Mary
