Editorial declarations

Correction: Text has been checked and proof-read twice.

Normalization: The electronic text represents the edited text. In Meyer's edition, the acute accent and the macron are used to mark long vowels. Both are retained. Editorial corrections are marked. Text in German is indicated. Names are capitalized in line with CELT practice.

Quotation: There are no quotations.

Hyphenation: Soft hyphens are silently removed. When a hyphenated word (hard or soft) crosses a page-break or line-break, this break is marked after the completion of the hyphenated word.

Segmentation: div0=the poem. Page-breaks are marked pb n="".

Interpretation: Names are not tagged, nor are terms for cultural and social roles. Such encoding is envisaged in a future edition.
