Encoding description

Project description: CELT: Corpus of Electronic Texts

Sampling declarations

The present text represents pages 43–51. All editorial introduction, notes and indexes have been omitted. Editorial corrigenda are integrated into the electronic edition. Missing text supplied by the editor is tagged sup resp="VH". The English translation is available in a separate file, T301020B.

Editorial declarations

Correction: Text has been checked and proofread twice.

Normalization: The electronic text represents the edited text on pp. 43–51. Raised dots have been replaced by hyphens. Not all special characters appearing in the print edition would display properly (M, m and n with overdot; ae-ligature with acute accent or macron; characters with an underdot, which latter indicate a vowel to be elided in verse [Introduction, p. 35]), these have been marked using comments in the XML version.

Quotation: Direct speech is marked q.

Hyphenation: When a hyphenated word (hard or soft) crosses a page break, the break is marked after the completion of the hyphenated word.

Segmentation: div0=the saga; div1=the section; page-breaks are marked pb n=""/. Passages of verse are embedded in a separate text; linegroups (lg) and lines (l) are indicated. Line numbering follows the lineation of the printed text.

Interpretation: Personal names (given names), place-names and group names are not tagged. Verses within poems, where marked with alphabetic letters by Hull, have been numbered at CELT. Words in brackets supplied by the editor are marked sup resp="VH". Quotation marks were removed from roscad sections, and the raised dot was replaced by a hyphen.

Reference declaration

A canonical reference to a location in this text should be made using “section”, eg section 1.
