Hamlet, Prince of Denmark

Use a separate css file - explain hide explanation

Separate CSS   By default the “Open the text” and “Download the text” buttons supply files with CSS embeded. If you want to change the style, tick this box and supply a modified version of shakmob.css. That file contains instructions for one change you might wish to make: suppressing the Act.Scene.Line numbers against each speech.

Note that Kindle appears to demand embeded CSS. If you want different formatting there, download the text, make the changes and email to Kindle yourself.

Line and speech counts are added to the text - rarely used
   
I have told Kindle to accept emails from PoSP@FastMail.com

Kindle   Before you can send stuff to Kindle you must log in to your Amazon account and find your way to “Manage Your Content and Devices” / “Settings”. On this page find “Personal Document Settings” and within that “Send-to-Kindle E-Mail Settings”. Make a note of the email address for your Kindle - this is the address you must enter in the box above.
Vital   A little lower in the same page you will see “Approved Personal Document E-mail List”. It is vital that you add to this list PoSP@FastMail.com .
Multiple   This facility only supports one email address at a time. If you wish to send to more than one of your Kindles, try sending to the oldest one. You may well find that the document has become visible to your other Kindles.
Otherwise find your way to “Manage Your Content and Devices” / “Content” in your Amazon account and do it from there. Remember that these are “Docs” rather than “Books” in Amazon terms.

Whole play links (ie. speech count links for each character) will be to name.htm, eg. pericles.htm. For use if you have the play on your computer. Default is to link to the play on this site. The two options in the “Open the text” box above are also applied to this option.
Use 1993 original state of Moby Shakespeare.
This option applies to all the above choices of action.
Changes from Moby
In one place where Marcellus and Bernardo speak together and numerous places where Rosenstern and Guildencrantz do the same the character names do not convert prettily in the local version.
At 1.4.5 "no, it is struck" attributed to Hamlet instead of Marcellus.
Circa 3.2.46 beginning with "… keep one suit of jests" are about fifteen lines which do not appear in First Folio but which this page attributes to the quarto of 1603.
At the end of 4.1 there are four lines beginning "so haply slander" which do not appear in the First Folio but which some editions add. The MIT version omits them, Moby has them but misplaces the closing ] .
At 4.3.29 three lines including "a man may fish with the worm" are not in the First Folio.
