Quark Tags List: a rough list of common tags used: – it is slightly out of date….
Hyphens and spaces
How to force non-breaking words (for instance so headlines don’t hyphenate)
Either – call an HnJ in your style sheet in which hyphenation is turned off – sadly this needs to be set through the Quark Interface, so needs to be set on the page first. You cannot define the HnJ settings with tags … only call them.
OR — add a discretionary hyphen at the front of a word you do not want to break (perhaps everyword in a headline) …
This can be done by inserting cmd-hyphen at the front of the word,
or in Quark Tags, adding <\h>
@$:Here is a breaking word <\h>antidisestablishmentarianism
How to force a ‘preferred’ hyphenation point.
Use a discretionary hyphen in the word, placed at the preferred hyphenation point – so if you prefer anti-disestablishmentarionism to antidisestablish-mentarionism, try
Used in words that are hyphenate, but that you do not want to break – say to keep: Hugh-Jones on one line ..
Use cmd-= when typing the hyphen, or <\!> in Quark Tags.
Use cmd-space when typing the space.
Note – forcing a lot of non-breaking spaces can force all your copy into overmatter – if Xpress can’t work out a place to break the copy, it justs forces it all into overmatter,
- Bullet = octal-245 (\245)
- Non-breaking space <\s>
- Non-breaking hyphen
- discretionary hyphen <\h>
- soft return <\n>
What makes tag import (cmd-E) break – bad tags
- Have no tag extension – so cannot interpret the tags
- have not checked the ‘import as tags’ check box on the import window
- Have a bad tag
- spurious < or > in the text …
- wrong line endings. Noite this can get confusing as some afp servers such as ethershare clever;y interpret and convert line endings on the fly: this means that line endings are not consistent from site to site. Always test.
