I spent the month of January converting most of my plays into good old HTML—the way the web works! I now realize that I didn’t mark them up well enough, though, so I’m going back through and adding
divs like crazy!
But it’s one thing to add markup to my scripts; it’s another to make them look nice. I need your help.
I’d like you to take a look at two versions of Urban Myth. The first is formatted like a manuscript—the same way I format my printed plays you see in PDF on the site. The second is formatted in a style closer to those of published plays like the ones on Playscripts.
Please play around with both files: increase the text size, print them out, draw dirty pictures on them. Then tell me what you think. Both versions use CSS-generated content to create parentheses and colons, and these won’t show up in the ancient Internet Explorer. Does this make it difficult to read?
Here are the files:
- Urban Myth manuscript style
- Urban Myth published style
Feedback is welcome. And if you have any suggestions or style tips of your own, please tell me!
