    I have the following sentence:

    The book, "One Hundred Years of Solitude," sat on the shelf, majestically gathering dust.

    For the italicized title, should I enclose the whole thing, including the enclosing quotes, in italic passage indicators:
    .78,"o ,hundr$ ,ye>s ( ,solitude10.'
    or should I keep my italic indicators nestled up to the words:
    8.7,"o ,hundr$ ,ye>s ( ,solitude.'10

    Perhaps there is a third option that would be best?

    Thank you very much for your time.

    It appears to me, based on the print you included, that the quotation marks are not included in the italics, so I would put the italic indicators inside the quote marks. However, if the quotes ARE obviously included in the italics, the indicators can enclose the whole thing. Either way is OK according to UEB rules. If the book is inconsistent in the way this is handled, I would treat them all consistently...pick one way and do them all the same.



    Thank you, Cindi. That lays my confusion to rest.
