Level 1 and Level 2

In level one and two, a normalisation of the spaces is carried out. This applies to the following areas:

  • Punctuation marks are placed directly at the preceding word without a space. This is followed by a space.
  • Inverted commas and parentheses are placed without spaces directly at the text they enclose.
  • Similarly, footnote references nestle directly against the preceding character without a space.

The print on the page by a spatium that has fallen off during the printing process is not usually transcribed.

Several dots in sequence, which are intended to clarify an ellipsis, are each enclosed by a space. An exception is made for dots that indicate a word break. They are placed directly after the incomplete word without a space.

There is a space before and after a dash in the middle of a sentence. If the dash is directly before a punctuation mark, no space is typed between them.

The Unicode table determines the punctuation rules General Punctuation.
