Members of the E-Text Center staff did additional proofing. Editing and additional SGML tagging was by Catherine Tousignant and Sachiko Iwabuchi.

The lack of macrons (long marks) for o's and u's in the current version of HTML is especially noticeable here, with three ways of writing the title: "No" with a macron; "No"; and the traditional "Noh."

The background for this edition is an image of handmade kozo paper by Timothy Barrett, author of Japanese Papermaking (New York: Weatherhill, 1992), in the collection of the Book Arts Press at the University of Virginia.
