Cambuslang - famous connections[edit]

Cambuslang - famous connections appears to have been hived off from this article, but why? It's not as though this one is exceptionally long. I think it should be re-integrated. Grant | Talk

Me too. It's a preposterous creation, and a preposterous name for an article. I cannot see any justification for keeping it as a seperate article.FrFintonStack 23:03, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

James Mills[edit]

James Mills under Notable people seems to have no reference, here or online. The evidence from the entry itself is that it is a total fantasy

Location On Map (InfoBox)[edit]

Please revise the location on the map of Scotland as CAMBUSLANG appears to be 35 miles south of its location. —Preceding unsigned comment added by George R. Allison (talkcontribs) 19:24, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Formatting[edit]

Wikipedia:Manual of Style (text formatting) offers this advice on the use of bolding and italics:

Boldface is used to separate the article name from ordinary text. It is typically used in the first paragraph of an article, used with proper names and common terms for the article topic, including any synonyms and acronyms. Do this only for the first occurrence of the term; for instance, you should avoid using boldface both in the lead section and the caption of the lead image.
Use italics, not boldface, for emphasis in article text. Use boldface in the remainder of the article only for a few special uses: Table headers, Definition lists, Volume numbers of journal articles in some bibliographic formats.
Use italics for titles of the following:
Books such as The Da Vinci Code
Films such as The Terminator
Foreign-language words such as kanji'
Periodicals (newspapers, journals, and magazines) such as Newsweek and The New York Times
Plays such as Much Ado About Nothing
....
Italics are generally used for titles of longer works. Enclose titles of shorter works in double quotation marks, such as the following:
Articles, essays or papers
Chapters of a longer work
Episodes of a television series
....
Quotations
It is normally incorrect to put quotations in italics. They should only be used if the material would otherwise call for italics, such as for emphasis or to indicate use of non-English words. Indicate whether italics were used in the original text or whether they were added later. For example:
