In order to prevent the left and right white space (quiet area) from being inadvertently occupied in the printing and typesetting, a quiet area mark can be printed in the white space (printed when there is no number on the left. Mark, extra print if there is no number on the right. No.). The main function is to prevent the quiet zone width insufficient.
