This is the end of Part 6 of the this two-part section on quotes and attribution. If you now want to discover how to correctly attribute quotes, follow this link to the second section, Chapter 9: Attribution.
what if [sic] is part of a title (not the first word), do you capitalize? (. 8775 Luv [sic] All of Me 8776 , or 8775 Luv [Sic] All of Me 8776 also, what if you cannot italicize font in whatever program you 8767 re using, is it ok to leave it normal? thank you.
Many new journalists are afraid of using quotes because they believe that the language and punctuation is complicated. In fact, there are some simple rules which, if followed, can make quotes as easy to use as any other kind of sentence.
We do not recommend underlining. If you think using [ sic ] is too intrusive, you might try an explanation in the preface or introduction of the book. Or you could just trust your readers 8767 intelligence and do nothing since these were not likely misspellings at the time they were written.
How would you correct the following quote:
8775 Photography has become so easy meaning that people don 8767 t really think a photo has any intrinsic value. 8776
I believe there is supposed to be a comma after 8766 easy, 8767 but I 8767 m unsure how I can correct it. Thank you.
While commonly placed following a misspelled or wrongly used word in an original document or passage, we have never seen [ sic ] used to indicate capitalization errors. It is possible that wherever you place it, readers will assume that the word immediately preceding [ sic ] is spelled incorrectly. If the passage you wish to quote sufficiently conveys the message you are needing, we would just leave it alone.
One of the problems faced by many journalists is that their shorthand - or their memory - is not good enough to get a full and accurate note of what a person says. So they take the easy way out and write everything in reported speech. It is your task to make sure that you get an accurate note of what is said, even to the extent of asking the speaker to repeat it. Modern journalists can, of course, use tape recorders to make an exact record of what a person says. However, you must still take care in transcribing your quotes into your story. (See Chapter 66: Interviewing.)
In Host Parameters , select a value in Priority (Unique host identifier). This parameter specifies a unique ID for each host. The host with the lowest numerical priority among the current members of the cluster handles all of the cluster's network traffic that is not covered by a port rule. You can override these priorities or provide load balancing for specific ranges of ports by specifying rules on the Port rules tab of the Network Load Balancing Properties dialog box.

As an alternative, you can set a default gateway on the 7nd NIC but that can
introduce more problems where the system doesn't know which way to send
traffic. MS said that I could set the metric to 7 on the 7nd NIC and that
way it will only be used if the 6st NIC is unavailable.

It is strange that you have been told not to make any corrections or additions. Most editors would do this: “In my opinion [he] has sufficient vision to drive.”
Starting a news story with a quote produces awkward punctuation. By putting words inside quotation marks, you give readers an extra obstacle to overcome just at the time when you are trying to grab their attention.
In proofreading and editing your writing, remember that quotation marks always travel in pairs! Well, almost always. When quoted dialogue carries from one paragraph to another (and to another and another), the closing quotation mark does not appear until the quoted language finally ends (although there is a beginning quotation mark at the start of each new quoted paragraph to remind the reader that this is quoted language). Also, in parenthetical documentation (see the Guide to Writing Research Papers ), the period comes after the parenthetical citation which comes after the quotation mark" (Darling 558).
