Thanks for this information. I write in MS Word. I’m confused about paragraphs. Some info out there says that you don’t indent the opening paragraph of a chapter or scene break. Does it depend on each agent/publisher? Also, I used the hit-the-space-bar-manually-five-times rule (if there is such a rule) for the first line on each paragraph of my manuscript. I didn’t use the tab button. I understand now that I should have set the indent in Word through Format->Paragraph->Section before I began writing and it would automatically indent the proper spacing. My manual spaces don’t look like they’re enough, even though I hit the space bar five times. I’m at a loss as to what to do with my completed manuscript that’s otherwise properly formatted. Thanks.
People replying to a question an obnoxious or defamatory manner, and not responding to subject / topic matter asked as in:
"take numbah-one-san, then you have numbah-two-san...." then ends with "then back at the jungle...".
As a white male English-speaking South African, living in Sandton, I was highly offended by the tone of answer, so replied (politely) to this electronics forum (and Dutch Texan) with geographical map (no jungles) and link to RSA cities online brochure.
On an amusing note: noobs who "explain" incorrectly to engineers / moderators how a very basic component [i]should[/i] work!

Really fascinating MUO site - I've bookmarked it in my browser.
