Provides a basic set of functions for a transcription of a text that is marked up using XML, not necessarily in TEI. There is an assumption that the markup includes at least rudimentary structural definition.

viewTOC

Returns a logical table of contents for a text as valid X/HTML.  The table of contents contains actionable URLs for each unit of content of a text.  These URLs are fully formed calls to viewChunk (see below).This logical table of contents is essentially the entry point to a text as it lists all accessible units of content (chunks) and embeds the appropriate actionable URL call to viewChunk to retrieve a particular unit of content.

viewHeader

Returns the header information for a text as valid X/HTML; it is assumed that this header will provide information about the text as a whole.

viewChunk

Returns a logical chunk of a text, such as a chapter, as valid X/HTML.  This assumes that a request parameter (chunkID) is passed. For example, the actionable URL for a viewChunk call might look as follows: http://repository01.lib.tufts.edu:8080/fedora/get/tufts:UA069.005.DO.00001/bdef:TuftsTextAssetDef/viewChunk?chunkID=num00001.  A complete list of valid request parameters for a given text is available via the viewTOC action.
