The translation follows the text of L as far as it goes, but also includes paragraphs 1-3 and 14, which in the original Irish are found only in H. In the HTML display, the material translated from the text of L is coloured black. Material translated from H is given in dark blue.

Occasional brief gaps occur in the printed edition owing to the obscurity of the original text. These gaps have been preserved in the TLH edition.

Encoding principles:


TLH has not made any alterations to Best’s text.


The electronic text represents R. I. Best’s printed translation.


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.
