Hi Tamasin

I think you are doing some editing/updating of pages at the mo? Cd you pls do the refs according to the new format?--see "How to format referencing"

Do let me know if anything is not clear in this referencing guide because I want it to make sense to everyone.

Can you also fill me in very briefly on what you have been and are doing in Spinp at the moment? as it's useful for me to know who's doing what--then I know what I don't have to do myself, if that makes sense.

many thanks --Claire Robinson 13:16, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

On lists

Hi Tamasin

when you do lists of people and companies that have no additional text except their names, there is apparently a coding format that we need to follow. So at the moment at we have a vertical list created with <br>:

AXA <br>

Abbey <br>

Alliance and Leicester <br>

The SpinP system is that we need to arrange lists like this across the page so they take up less space vertically. This can be done by doing a find and replace in Word before putting the article into SpinP:

Find ^p Replace with ]] | [[

Then the list goes nicely across the page ...

Does that make sense?

thank you! --Claire Robinson 14:06, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

why do you...

About Grayling... why do you remove an item that is clearly a quotation; edit it; remove references and blend it into less than useful text? silly. There must be several hundred quotations in Spin* which are in a <blockquote...>. do you aim to remove all of them? and are you going to replace direct quotes with your own versions of the text? The latter cannot be referenced.
