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 &
This edition incorporates textual variations between the different MSS in which the text occurs. For the mark-up of these variations, see sub heading Tags declaration below. This edition also contains editorial emendations of MS readings. For the mark-up of these emendations, see sub heading Correction below. In the HTML format, these variations and emendations are encoded as hyperlinks. Clicking the links will display the variant readings in a pop-up window.
In his printed edition, Meyer has in some places emended the reading of the MS. These emendations are encoded in TLH by means of the <corr> tag with two attributes, namely the “sic” attribute, indicating the reading of the MS, and the “resp” attribute, indicating editorial responsibility. Editorial responsibility is indicated as follows: “p” indicates print editor and “e” the editor of the electronic edition. TLH has not made any alterations to the text of the printed edition.
The text has not been normalised.
No quotations occur.
No end-of-line hyphenation occurs.
- The <app> tag is used to encode the critical apparatus, and contains a lemma and at least one variant reading.
- The <lem> tag is used within the <app> tag to encode the lemma, i.e. a word or phrase in the text variations of which occur in other MS versions.
- The <rdg> tag is used within the <app> tag to encode the variant readings that occur. The “wit” attribute identifies the source of the readings.
