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 text contains editorial emendations of MS readings. For the mark-up of these emendations, see sub heading Correction below. In the HTML format, emendations are encoded as hyperlinks. Clicking the links will display the readings in a pop-up window.
In his printed edition, Dillon 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 Dillon’s text.
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.
- 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 <add> tag is reserved for additions made to the text in the original manuscript prior to the publication of modern editions.
