I don't know if this will help but the scripts I've received have not
included _more_ or _continued_ before a page break. The script is a
shooting script or the complete script to be presented for finance
purposes or submitted to a script festival?
I also have question of standard layout of scripts for submission to a
script festival.  I do script translations from to English and many of
the scripts go to international festivals.  The standard in Chile has
been total justification with dialogue using a hanging indent and
bolded.  In books I have  I've seen scene identification centered and
character named above with dialogue having a left and right indent.
I've also seen books presented with the dialogue having a hanging indent
scene indentification centered and italized with movement and
description justified.
I have a lot respect for the filmmakers here and would like to see their
work presented in the best possible form so can some one tell me is
there an international standard for layout and if so what is it.
