I'm typesetting a catalog for a client into several languages, and I realize that I don't know enough about editorial and typographic norms for Dutch and German. If anyone could answer these questions, I'd appreciate it.
1. What are the Dutch and German capitalization norms for titles and headlines?
2. German does not use italics, correct? Do they indicate book titles in any particular way? How about Dutch?
3. What are the best quotation marks to use for German and Dutch?
4. Are there any other obvious rules I should know?
