                    of fire in the brain. Sitting in darkness, a great light flooded him with wild brilliance. He

                    that Sam's jaded thirst was instantly stimulated. He took the bottle eagerly from Penrod.</p>
       <p>"A         <p>"<said who="#penrod">A-a-h!</said>" exclaimed Penrod,

                <!--Text removed from example-->
                <p>Penrod uttered some muffled words and then waved both armseither in response or as an   
                    expression of his condition of mind; it may have been a gesture of despair. How much intention 
                    there was in this actobviously so rash, considering the position he occupiedit is impossible to 
                    say. Undeniably there must remain a suspicion of deliberate purpose.</p>

  • <said>: Use to indicate passages thought or spoken aloud
    • @who info needs to added
    • When <said> is used, the who attribute is required. To facilitate the use of the who attribute, be sure you first record the
      person in the TEI Header following the instructions under the prosopography section. This will generate a pick list for the who attribute (to minimize errors and ensure consistency).
  • <q> is used when someone is being quoted, but it's not an actual <said>. The use of <q> is kinda mushy, but here's a good example:

<p>When, for instance, <persName ref="#maurice">Mr Maurice</persName> tells us that 
<q who="#maurice">'the end of education itself is, as it has always been considered, to 
form a nation of liv- ing, orderly men,'</q> the definition will be accepted, with the 
tacit reservation that it applies only to men, in the exclusive sense of the word, and 
has nothing to do with the education of women.</p>
  • <foreign>: A word or phrase is in quotation marks, italisized or set apart in some way because it not the predominant language used in the text.
    • Attempt to identify the language using the "xml:lang" attribute and a two-letter (as opposed to the three-letter) code according to the ISO 639 standard. See example below.
  • <distinct>: A word or phrase is in quotes or set apart in some way because it is linguistically distinct such as slang or regional dialect.<q>: Use the more generic <q> tag for quotations that are not defined as <said>, <distinct> or <foreign>

Anything else that appears in quotes but is neither <quote>, <said>, <foreign> or <distinct> does not need to be differentiated in the markup.

Retain the quotation marks printed in the text. Tags should surround the quotation marks when present.
