att.trans

Attributes for elements encoding authorial or scribal intervention when transcribing manuscript or similar sources.
Module
MEI.edittrans
Attributes
decls, hand, instant, seq, state
decls(optional)Identifies one or more metadata elements (other than classification terms) within the header, which are understood to apply to the element bearing this attribute and its content. One or more values from data.URI, separated by spaces.
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.
instantThe @instant attribute is syntactic sugar for classifying a scribal intervention as an ad-hoc modification; that is, one which does not interrupt the writing process. Value must conform to data.BOOLEAN or unknown.
seq(optional)Used to assign a sequence number related to the order in which the encoded features carrying this attribute are believed to have occurred. Value is a positive integer.
statePoints to the genetic state that results from this modification. One or more values from data.URI, separated by spaces.
(MEI.genetic) Attributes that pertain to a genetic state.
instantThe @instant attribute is syntactic sugar for classifying a scribal intervention as an ad-hoc modification; that is, one which does not interrupt the writing process. Value must conform to data.BOOLEAN or unknown.
statePoints to the genetic state that results from this modification. One or more values from data.URI, separated by spaces.
(MEI.shared) Attributes which identify a document hand.
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.
(MEI.shared) Provides attributes for elements which may be associated with particular contextual elements within the header.
decls(optional)Identifies one or more metadata elements (other than classification terms) within the header, which are understood to apply to the element bearing this attribute and its content. One or more values from data.URI, separated by spaces.
(MEI.shared) Attributes that describe order within a collection of features.
seq(optional)Used to assign a sequence number related to the order in which the encoded features carrying this attribute are believed to have occurred. Value is a positive integer.
Genetic encoding component declarations.
instantThe @instant attribute is syntactic sugar for classifying a scribal intervention as an ad-hoc modification; that is, one which does not interrupt the writing process. Value must conform to data.BOOLEAN or unknown.
statePoints to the genetic state that results from this modification. One or more values from data.URI, separated by spaces.
Component declarations that are shared between two or more modules.
decls(optional)Identifies one or more metadata elements (other than classification terms) within the header, which are understood to apply to the element bearing this attribute and its content. One or more values from data.URI, separated by spaces.
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.
seq(optional)Used to assign a sequence number related to the order in which the encoded features carrying this attribute are believed to have occurred. Value is a positive integer.
Available at
abbr(abbreviation) – A generic element for 1) a shortened form of a word, including an acronym or 2) a shorthand notation.
add(addition) – Marks an addition to the text.
corr(correction) – Contains the correct form of an apparent erroneous passage.
cutoutA cutout is a section of a document sheet that has been removed and is now missing.
del(deletion) – Contains information deleted, marked as deleted, or otherwise indicated as superfluous or spurious in the copy text by an author, scribe, annotator, or corrector.
expan(expansion) – Contains the expansion of an abbreviation.
patchDescribes a physical writing surface attached to the original document.
restoreIndicates restoration of material to an earlier state by cancellation of an editorial or authorial marking or instruction.
subst(substitution) – Groups transcriptional elements when the combination is to be regarded as a single intervention in the text.
metaMarkA graphical or textual statement with additional / explanatory information about the musical text. The textual consequences of this intervention are encoded independently via other means; that is, with elements such as <add>, <del>, etc.
Editorial and transcriptional component declarations.
