Text formatting

Several text formatting bracketings are available.

Instructions

\instruct{} will format the contents as instructions, i.e. italicized and slightly smaller font size than the body text.

\instruct{Here are some instructions.}

instructions

\instructsmall{} does the same, but at an even smaller font size.

instructions

Bible verses

\bibleref{} will format a Bible reference (chapter and verse) in a small font in small-caps:

\bibleref{John 3:16}

instructions

\bibleverse{}{} takes two arguments: the text of the Bible verse, and its reference (chapter and verse). It formats the former in standard body text, and the latter is formatted in a small font in small caps, right-justified.

instructions

Miscellaneous

It is conventional to typset the current monarch’s name (if any) in all caps, italicized. We can do this with \monarch{}:

\monarch{ELIZABETH}

monarch

To put a box around some text, and italicize the text inside, we can use \boxaround{}:

\boxaround{A box.}
