Here's my question. Can TM and (R) show up in the same word? An author has done that for a word within the title of her book.

Also, in running text, does the TM (superscript) go before or after the period if it's at the end of a sentence?

Lynn:
In block quotes of several paragraphs, are first lines of paragraphs two and after indented, or are line spaces set between paragraphs with no indents?

Hi, Barbara. Interesting questions! According to "The Chicago Manual of Style," the (R) stands for a registered trademark, and TM stands for an unregistered trademark. I am not sure why the author would use both. "Chicago" also suggests omitting them whenever possible.

As for punctuation with TM, "Chicago" places the symbol before any punctuation mark.

Hi, Wayne. "The Gregg Reference Manual" recommends not indenting paragraphs, instead using a blank line between them.

It adds, however, that "if paragraph indention was called for in the original," you should indent the paragraphs and not leave a blank line between them.
