INF385t is encoding letters from the Katherine Anne Porter collection at the University of Maryland, College Park, Special Collections. These are their encoding questions.
Some elements and structures we’ve decided to tag:
Adds < add >
Deletes < delete>
- includes spacing and all small typos
ex. < add> < space n=” ” /> </add >
emphasis (ex. < hi > <emph > w/ rend= “underline”)
Notes in the text:
< note place= “marginLeft” > (or “marginRight” or “interlinear”)
notes taped in, describe in the header under Manuscript Description
Can use < rend align=”vertical” > etc. for any odd placements, etc.
Hand- for major shifts
< handShift scribe= “KAP” medium =”pen” / >
next time it shifts put it back into the previous type use “pen” “type” “pencil”
Milestones <milestone unit=”part” rend=”+++ “/ > esp. in context of lines of asterisks, etc.
