What is it?
<del> tag marks text that has been deleted in the by the author (scribe, proofreader, editor, etc.)
We distinguish 4 different types of deletions:
- crossed out text (
- overwritten text (
- instant corrections (
- and text that was marked for deletion by underlining (
@hand attribute indicates the author of the addition. At the moment we distinguish between three different hands:
- handwritten deletions marked by Samuel Beckett (
- typewritten deletions marked by anyone – including Samuel Beckett (
- handwritten deletions not marked by Samuel Beckett (
Please remember to start each
@hand value with a hashtag (see: 'Special Case: xml:id'). For those rare cases where a handwritten deletion was not marked by Samuel Beckett and you do know who wrote it, start the value with a hashtag, followed by that person's initials. Make sure you also leave a
<!--VINCENT: --> comment (see: <note>) that mentions that person's full name, so we can easily find it and declare it in the
@rend attribute indicates the writing tool used to mark the deletion. At the moment we distinguish between 5 different writing tool renditions:
- additions made in blue ink (
- additions made in black ink (
- additions made in ink darker than blue, but lighter than black: (
- additions made in red ink (
- supralinear made using a pencil (
The 'ink' in these cases can both be a pen's ink, or a typewriter's ink ribbon.
@resp attribute indicates the person responsible for the deletion's transcription, and its value consists of a hashtag (#), followed by the transcriber's initials. Please use your own initials when transcribing a text, or correcting someone else's tags.
<del> tag, the
@resp attributes are obligatory.
