Use of "scriptum" box

The "scriptum" box should contain only the text of the lex itself. Text such as "Voted by the comitia centuriata" should not be inside the box (and in fact is redundant since it is already given in the boxes above), nor should "legal links".

Official foreword

Tabularium office foreword: The writing of this text, laid to the comitia and voted in the following raw state, is in itself uneasy to apply if the reader has not in mind that the present law aims to define the oath (iusiurandum) that the magistrates of Nova Roma and some officers, that further laws will precise, have to pronounce. To avoid problems of interpretation, the expressions "enter the legal and Roman names" or "enter the Roman name" have been precised under the responsibility of the Praetor in charge of this Tabularium. This oath is the following:

The official foreword is almost incomprehensible.

That sort of explanation is another of the sort of thing that should be here, on the talk page, not cluttering up the main article. Agricola 13:36, 25 August 2007 (CEST)

What the heck is the "Tabularium office"?? Agricola 03:27, 26 August 2007 (CEST)

Tiring of reading it, I moved it here, where it belongs, if it belongs anywhere. Agricola 03:38, 26 August 2007 (CEST)

Template troubles

I see that not all of the templates end with a nice "break and clear". DO NOT FIX IT ON THIS PAGE! FIX IT IN THE TEMPLATE! Agricola 03:38, 26 August 2007 (CEST)

Divergence from text as enacted

The text of this lex is not the same as the text which was approved by the comitia. The official foreword appears to say that these subsequent changes have been made under the provisions of the lex Equitia de corrigendis legum erratis. The lawfulness of these changes is in doubt.

- Cordus 13:25, 25 August 2007 (CEST)

I think that we need to have a way to show when corrigendis changes have been made. It should be clear to the reader and simple to use. Maybe underlining? We should also require those persons who make these changes to note simple ones in the edit summary and substantial ones on the talk page. Agricola 13:36, 25 August 2007 (CEST)
