    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:

    This text contains editorial emendations of MS readings. For the mark-up of these emendations, see sub heading Correction below. In the HTML format, these emendations are encoded as hyperlinks. Clicking the links will display the MS readings in a pop-up window.

    Encoding principles:


    In his printed edition, Stokes 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. In two instances, Stokes has let the MS reading stand, but has suggested an alternative reading in a footnote. This is marked by the <sic> tag with two attributes, namely the “corr” attribute indicating the suggested emendation 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 Stokes’ 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, and wherever a page-break occurs in the midst of a hyphenated word, the break is marked after the end of the hyphenated word.
