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 &
- the Latin abbreviation for vel is displayed as nó
- e with an ogonek (i.e. ę) is used to represent MS tall e
The electronic text was transcribed from Aislinge Oengusso in ‘Two Irish Tales’, ed. Edward Müller, Revue Celtique 3 (1876-78), with readings from R. Thurneysen, ‘Zu irischen Texten’ (ZCP 12, 1918) p. 400. The text was then collated with MS Egerton 1782. The electronic version is a diplomatic version of the manuscript original. Punctuation, word division and capitalisation are as in the manuscript. Contractions are expanded where possible and the expansions are tagged <expan>. MS q is retained in the electronic edition except for those instances in which it represents cu, and has been transcribed as such.
The text is tagged for folio and line breaks.
- The <supplied> tag is used to encode additions to the text made by the editor of the electronic text. The resp attribute indicates the source of the supplied text.
