Available only for academic teaching and research provided that this header is included in its entirety with any copy distributed. This edition may not be reproduced or used elsewhere without the explicit permission of the TLH project. For enquiries, please contact us.
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 &
Binchys 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.
- 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.
- The <del> tag is used to encode letters and words marked as superfluous in the printed edition.
- The <add> tag is reserved for additions made to the text in the original manuscript prior to the publication of modern editions.
