Executive summary

Specification for typographic requirements, marks for use in copy preparation and proof correction.

Abstract

This British Standard, a part of the BS 5261 series, specifies marks for use in copy preparation and proof correction. It specifies procedures to be followed when marking up copy for the typesetter and the proofing procedure to be followed by typesetter and customer.

A specimen page of a typesetter’s proof, showing the use of the marks, is included in an Annex to this standard.

The copy preparation and proof correction marks specified have been chosen:

a) to be relevant to the needs of all users of the standard and to reflect good trade practice;

b) to be clearly recognizable, memorable, and be quick and easy to reproduce;

c) so that no words, abbreviations and contractions are used for marginal marks, as they have applications in only one language;

d) so that textual and marginal marks contain common graphic elements and, where possible, are identical.
