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.
