    Re: Block Language

    Then, in block language, prepositions could be selectively dropped if there would be no risk of ambiguity?

    In headlines and captions anything can be dropped if there is no risk of ambiguity - and things are sometimes dropped even if ambiguity results. Headlines are a law unto themselves.
