      Vdova, indeed.

      See for instance
      http://web.quick.cz/iveta_kulhava/Typografie/Slovnicek.htm#vdova

      By the way, the proofreader's marks currently used were standardized as far back as the 1960s and there was never any problem looking them up under CSN 88 0410.

      Thanks, Gerry. When I was living there, I found that the typesetters I dealt with didn't know terms like this. Plus, there were no standard proofreader's marks that I could find. Very frustrating.
