name this please

What is the technical name of this text format where a certain part of the bigger text is highlighted and presented in a box. See the link below here. What is the technical name of the bit which says " The Mona Lisa had spent two years on Peruggia’s kitchen table. ‘I fell in love with her,’ he said from jail" about half way down the page. Extra points for someone who can suggest a wordpress plugin that allows this.

What's the best way to show work to publishers at SPX?

What's the best way of showing my work to publishers at Small Press Expo? I have a portfolio of dozens of medium-sized narrative drawings from which I'd like to pick 10-12 to show. Is it best to e-mail ahead before the event to reserve time? To go to the event and ask when they'd be free to review them? I know how busy the SPX floor can get on a Saturday afternoon, so I'd like to hear from those who've tried there, at other shows and in general.

Publishers like Library of America and the Pléiade?

Both the Library of America and the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade publish handsome, authoritative texts in uniform, built-to-last editions (with or without extensive notes), and being selected for publication in either is seen by many as affirming the author's place in the canon. What other publishers do the same thing? [more inside]

How much will a publisher pay for rights to shoot at your house?

I am in a unique situation. A celebrity rented my house as a residence and used it for commercial purposes under the auspices that she was owner of the home. Aside from tv usage, it has also recently come to my attention that my home has been featured prominently in a New York Times Best Selling book. My partner and I are going 'round and 'round about this. He says we should just settle with the production and publishing company directly ourselves, and that an entertainment attorney would milk it for all it's worth, leaving us with less than if we were to negotiate with the companies directly. I know about film and television. However, I know NOTHING about the publishing industry, or how much an owner would get paid for prominent coverage in the second of a two-part best-selling series of books. Does anyone by any chance have any clue where or how we could procure this information? Also, please weigh in...attorney, or no attorney?
