SONGS

Titles of both English and foreign songs are roman and within quotation marks:
            The Israeli national anthem "Ha-Tikva," or "The Hope"

When citing three or more lines of lyrics, generally indent and use italic without quotation marks. Short fragments are usually set in roman, enclosed within quotation marks, and run in with the text. Retain capitalization of original. Although slash marks are generally best avoided, they may be used to indicate line breaks; a space should be placed on either side of the slash mark.
