Module MEI.edittrans
Attributes
@agent (optional) Signifies the causative agent of damage, illegibility, or other loss of original text. Value of datatype string. att.agentident
@cert (optional) Signifies the degree of certainty or precision associated with a feature. Value conforms to data.CERTAINTY . att.evidence
@evidence (optional) Indicates the nature of the evidence supporting the reliability or accuracy of the intervention or interpretation. Suggested values include: 'internal', 'external', 'conjecture'. Value of datatype NMTOKEN. att.evidence
@facs (optional) Permits the current element to reference a facsimile surface or image zone which corresponds to it. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.facsimile
@hand (optional) Signifies the hand responsible for an action. The value must be the ID of a <hand> element declared in the header. Value conforms to data.URI . att.handident
@label (optional) Provides a name or label for an element. The value may be any string. Value of datatype string. att.commonPart
@n (optional) Provides a number-like designation for an element. Value conforms to token . att.common
@reason (optional) Holds a short phrase describing the reason for missing textual material (gap), why material is supplied (supplied), or why transcription is difficult (unclear). Value of datatype string. att.reasonident
@resp (optional) Indicates the agent(s) responsible for some aspect of the text's creation, transcription, editing, or encoding. Its value must point to one or more identifiers declared in the document header. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.responsibility
@source (optional) Contains a list of one or more pointers indicating the sources which attest to a given reading. Each value should correspond to the ID of a <source> element located in the document header. One or more values from data.URI , separated by spaces. att.source
@translit (optional) Specifies the transliteration technique used. Value of datatype NMTOKEN. att.lang
@xml:base (optional) Provides a base URI reference with which applications can resolve relative URI references into absolute URI references. Value conforms to data.URI . att.commonPart
@xml:id (optional) Regularizes the naming of an element and thus facilitates building links between it and other resources. Each id attribute within a document must have a unique value. Value of datatype ID. att.id
@xml:lang (optional) Identifies the language of the element's content. The values for this attribute are language 'tags' as defined in BCP 47. All language tags that make use of private use sub-tags must be documented in a corresponding language element in the MEI header whose id attribute is the same as the language tag's value. Value of datatype language. att.lang

Remarks

Where the difficulty in transcription arises from an identifiable cause, the agent attribute signifies the causative agent. The cert attribute signifies the degree of certainty ascribed to the transcription of the text contained within the unclear element. Where the difficulty in transcription arises from action (partial deletion, etc.) assignable to an identifiable hand, the hand attribute signifies the hand responsible for the action. The reason attribute indicates why the material is difficult to transcribe. The resp attribute indicates the individual responsible for the transcription of the word, phrase, or passage contained with the unclear element. The value of resp must point to one or more identifiers declared in the document header.This element is modelled on an element in the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) standard.
