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:

Encoding principles:


Binchy’s printed edition contains footnotes with suggested emendations to the text of the MS. Words or phrases in the MS for which Binchy has proposed emendations are encoded by means of the <sic> tag, with the “corr” attribute indicating the proposed reading and the “resp” attribute, indicating the source of the emendation. In the HTML display, these readings are encoded as hyperlinks; clicking the links will display the emendations in a pop-up window.


This text has not been normalised.


Quotation marks are not used in the printed source. In the TLH edition, passages of direct speech are encoded with the <q> tag, which appears as quotation marks in the HTML display.


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.
