Encoding

All texts are marked up in TEI P5 conformant XML. We have a policy of minimal modification to the P5 schema, except for restricting unused elements, which has proved to be sufficiently flexible for our needs, whilst hopefully creating portable, standardised texts.

Each text is encoded around a base MS, selected as the most viable text amongst the variant MSS, and variations are encoded against this base. Multiple witness MSS (where available for collation) have been parallel-encoded internally within the base. Whilst this creates very complex markup in a few cases, for the majority it allows changes to be easily seen and noted.

The ‘Edition’ text provides a normalised text through selection of agreed readings by the present editors. Where readings have been suggested by previous editors and scholars, these are marked within the ‘Scholar’ view.
