Conventions for type-styles used

Italics are used for things that are not meant to be said out loud but rather are to help use the time and the prayers or to indicate where something has come from.
Bold is used when words are meant to be said together.
Emboldened italics tend to indicate a title of a canticle or similar.
Ordinary type is for things that the person who is leading at that point says on their own.
Three little dots like this … are shorthand to suggest a time of quiet or reflection. Normally the person leading at that point would be responsible for moving on to the next part after a suitable period of time.
