Rus of Poetry and Poets in Rags tells us that two papers other than News and Observer do a great job of publishing poetry — the Oregonian and the Washington Post — but they also screw up the lines and stanzas in their online versions.

I am much more joyous and I am sincere about my joy. The News and Observer folks fixed the stanza and lines breaks for the online version of “Song of Joy.” What got their attention was that I had to ask the Poetry and Poets in Rags folks to link to my version of the poem in which I had fixed the stanzas instead of the NandO page.

By this morning, the NandO page is as good as my own ;->
