  • VAB7399: I'm working on editing this one.  There's a weird mini table of contents on the title page (pdf pg. 3).  I used a table to try to get it to format correctly.  I know this is kind of abusing TEI, but is this okay?  --Rebecca
    • I'll try and have a look but Angela might have to instead. --Michelle
  • VAB7399: Should I tag titles like "Macbeth" and "Romeo and Juliet" that appear in the text with <title>?  (The book is critical essays on Shakespeare's plays).  Also, original encoder used <hi rend="uc"> to denote larger font.  Is that correct?  --Rebecca
    • Yes, and use @level as well. The VWWP Encoding Guidelines state this: When using the {{<title>} element in the text (as opposed to the TEI Header), be sure to use the level attribute when ever possible. The TEI provides values such as "m" for monographs, "a" for analytic (which would be used for a journal article, for instance), etc. Upper case means UPPER CASE so if it's already displaying as such the rend value is redundant and unncessary. --Michelle
  • VAB8048:  Having a problem with some Greek in the footnote on page 19 of the pdf.  There are many diacritics used to indicate how a vowel is pronounced in classical Greek, as the inverted breve and smooth breathing.  Should I be using HTML entities and Unicode to accurately represent these?  That seems to be the only way to do it accurately. For reference, I'm using the codes for them found here: http://www.alanwood.net/unicode/combining_diacritical_marks.html. --Thom
  • VAB8056: I have a pretty extensive index on this one.  The guidelines say to encode lists within lists for indexes.  This is not possible.  <list> cannot contain <list>.  I think it would be possible to just treat each line of the index as an <item> (even if it is a subheading).  Also, the index is two columns.  Is there a way to do this or should I just treat it as one column?  I think the list within a list issue is also a problem on Emily's old file VAB7403. --Rebecca
