The literary Instructional Manual, Fifth Edition, 19.2(b)2 says "If necessary two blank lines may be left between groupings, starting at the bottom of the page. In other words, if you had five extra lines, you would leave one blank line between groups 1 and 2, 2 and 3, 3 and 4, and 2 blank lines between groups 4 and 5." BF 2011 does not say specifically where these extra blank lines should be placed and Sample 2-21 shows the extra blank lines between the title and publisher segments. (The same for BF 1997, by the way: nothing said in the rules, but Examples 1 and 2 show extra blank lines starting at the top.) So, is this a discrepancy between literary and textbook formats? An agency decision?
