Talk:Letter of Superior General on theme of annual Vincentian Day of Prayer 2008

From Vincentian Encyclopedia

I have some mild reservations about using blockquote formatting for date and location of letter. I'm also wanting to understand better the reason for the use of italics in the blockquotes and in the prayer for systemic change (the introduction to which I would also probably not put in blockquotes, but there might be a good reason for doing so).

The original document of the letter did not use blockquotes for location and date. But it used to-the-right alignment. I agree, bold & italics are not necessary together in this case. I used it to distinguish the location and date from the body of the letter anyhow. The prayer is blockquoted of the same reason - paper original. The paper letter contains the prayer center aligned like poems. This is why the prayer is blockquoted italics here. Your doubts and indications are quite right. Thank you. --Toma' 14:09, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm not certain about this; if you feel strongly about formatting it differently, please go with that. PatriciaT
