 +====== Cock-Up Letter ======
 +
 +It is not unusual to begin a work, and the divisions of it, as Parts, or Books, with the first word set in [[c:​capitals|capitals]],​ and the first letter a larger capital, [[j:​justifying|justified]] to range at the [[f:​foot-letter|foot]] with the others, and bearing about the same proportion to them that capitals bear to their own [[s:​small-capitals|small capitals]]; whatever proportion there may be between the first letter and the other part of the word, if it be justified to range at the foot, it is styled a Cock-up Letter.
