What is it?
<encodingDesc> documents the relation between the electronic text and the original source document from which it was derived.
<tagsDecl> element contains information about the tags that have been used to encode the document. We use it to specify the colors that were used to render the
@rend attributes of the
<del> tags in the
<text> element. For example:
<tagsDecl> <rendition xml:id="blueblackink">#153E7E</rendition> <rendition xml:id="redink">#B00000</rendition> <rendition xml:id="pencil">#666666</rendition> </tagsDecl>
<editorialDecl> (editorial practice declaration) provides details of editorial principles and practices applied during the encoding of a text.
