Due to current browser limitations, certain characters in printed editions may not always be similarly displayed in the electronic version. In such cases, the following representations have been chosen for display purposes:
- characters with punctum delens or other marks indicating lenition (this applies to f, s, m and n) are displayed with following h and underlining: thus fh, sh, mh and nh
- insular ampersand (Tironian et) is displayed as &
Marstrander provides text from MS Harleian 5280 for five stanzas of verse (lines 14-34) in addition to the YBL text of the same poem. In the printed edition, both versions of this poem are printed side by side. The TLH electronic edition displays the two versions of the poem consecutively, the first with the heading YBL and the second with the heading Harleian 5280. The line-numbering of the printed edition has been retained.
This text has not been normalised.
Quotation marks enclosing direct speech, whether single or double in the printed source, are encoded in TLH with the <q> tag. The same tag is also used in situations where direct speech has not been explicitly marked by the use of quotation marks.
End-of-line hyphenation of the printed edition has not been retained, and wherever a page-break occurs in the midst of a hyphenated word, the break is marked after the end of the hyphenated word.
- The <expan> tag is used to encode text printed in italics to indicate editorial expansions of manuscript abbreviations.
- The <supplied> tag is used to encode additions to the text made by the print editor or the editor of the electronic text. The resp attribute indicates the source of the supplied text: p indicates print editor and e electronic editor.
