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 Etc.
