I'll be glad to set this up for you. Be right back with the MW.

Update: The MW is up. For the title, I used the format found in Worldcat, Kéramos : and other poems, also used by LOC. I you prefer to use the format given in the header, I'd need to check if we have any guidelines about using all caps in titles.

Section 50 - Dante

1.23

I always thought that Michelangelo was a single Christian name :hmm:

Can I add 46 47 & 50 to my list, if that isn't too many? They are all very short :)

Dante is PL OK. I'll add you in for 46 and 47, but 50 is what you just read so please choose another. :)
As to Michaelangelo, it appears spellings do change over time. Next up on the list, I fear, no capital letters no punctuation and shorthand speech...... "You are post to glad it. See me?"
