Great, that one would be a good start. It sounds like you have a good
grasp of what needs to be done. Subchapters will have their own
<section>, with the number going in <header><p> instead of an <h#>
because we don't want them in the ToC.
Make sure to read the Standard Ebooks Manual of Style before starting,
as you won't know what to fix if you haven't read the standards. In
particular, please closely review the semantics, high level patterns,
and typography sections:
The step by step guide will take you from start to finish:
Please email often if you have any questions at all. Our standards are
well-established so there is probably already a standard for formatting
whatever problem you've encountered.
When you're ready, email back with a link to your Github repository so
that I can mark you as having started.
Have fun! :)

> Text: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/15177
> Author info: Frank Arthur Swinnerton - Wikipedia
> There are multiple scans on Archive.org. This one appears to match my
> printed copy: https://archive.org/details/nocturne00swinuoft
> The book appears to be about 56,000 words before cutting out all the
> Gutenberg stuff that needs to be removed.
> The Gutenberg text seems to include the italics from the print edition,
> which are often single words the author has emphasized.
> The book includes an Introduction (by H.G. Wells, a friend of the
> author) and has three named parts (Evening, Night, Morning). The
> chapters all have names and are numbered consecutively I through XII
> across the three parts. Within each chapter, there are also subdivisions
> labeled with small Roman numerals (i, ii, iii, etc.) which don't have names.
> A quick skim doesn't show any poetry or other odd elements. Wells'
> introduction includes a couple of quotes.
> Swinnerton, who died in 1982 at age 98, doesn't seem to be much in print
> these days, but I hope this isn't too obscure to add to the Standard
