End Marks

An end mark is a common device in magazines, newsletters, and journals to signify the end of a major article, especially when the article spans several pages. The end mark can be a character taken from a picture font or an inline graphic. End marks should be scaled so that they are no bigger than the cap height of the text; depending on the mark you're using you may want to size them to the x-height. They can be separated from the text with an en space (Command+Shift+N/ Ctrl+Shift+N) or set flush right with the marginShift+Tab. To make sure they are consistent within the publication create an End Mark Character Style (See Chapter 13: " Stylin' with Paragraph and Character Styles").
