The section for art shelfmarks are styled quite differently from the others. It looks especially bad right now because the "code" formatting hasn't been changed yet.

The section for art shelfmarks are styled quite differently from the others. It looks especially bad right now because the "code" formatting hasn't been changed yet. Nevertheless, the basic issue of articles containing preformatted examples with parenthetical comment is going to keep coming up and I'd like to settle our basic house style. --Deborah J.
