Romeo and Juliet

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

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 .
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.

This selection applies to all the above choices of action.
In 1.1 there is uncertainty as to whether the character should be called Abram or Abraham. In the First Folio the stage direction is "enter two other Servingmen". Thereafter the one that speaks is identified simply as "Abra.". (The name Balthasar has been guessed from a reference in 5.1.)
In 1.2 the Servant is called Clown in some editions.
At 1.2.75 & 76 there is uncertainty as to whether Romeo or the Servant says "to supper".
At 2.1.143 "Nurse [Within] Madam" may appear only as a stage direction.
At 2.1.199 the First Folio gives "parting is such sweet sorrow" to Romeo. However it shows the four lines "The grey-eyed morn … Titan’s wheels" being spoken by Romeo at 2.2.204 and repeated as the first four lines of Friar Laurence’s opening speech in 2.3. So clearly there has been some bad proof reading in this area and editors take different views as to how to tidy it.
At 2.4.207 some versions have the Nurse say "Peter, take my fan, and go before and apace".
At 3.1.58 some versions have "the hate I bear thee".
