I'm trying to format a dialogue which is included in a prosaic translation. I am using Poemscol at the moment because it was the only format I could find which would conveniently let me number stanzas but am open to other suggestions. The approximate format that I am looking for is:
Alavaka: How can the flood be crossed?
How overcrossed the sea?
How dukkha can be overcome?
How win to purity? 183
The Buddha: By faith the flood is overcrossed
By vigilence the sea
By effort dukkha's overcome
By wisdom, purity 184
