The Design and Construction of eBooks, by Steve Thomas

Plays

Hamlet To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, . . .

Special classes are used for Plays, to delineate the name of the character, her speech, and stage directions:

.act p { margin-left:1em; }

.speaker {
    font-variant:small-caps;
    margin-left:-1em;
}

.stage { font-style:italic; }

We also use div.play and div.act but these have no styles applied and are therefore not mentioned in the stylesheet.
