Contents

1 Modules Included

This schema is a very large subset of the TEI, likely to be too large for most proactical purposes. It is intended for use when teaching TEI. It includes the following modules: That is to say, it includes all TEI modules except:

2 Technical Specification

Classes defined

att.ascribed

att.ascribed provides attributes for elements representing speech or action that can be ascribed to a specific individual.

Module tei
Members change move q said setting sp
Attributes In addition to global attributes
who indicates the person, or group of people, to whom the element content is ascribed.
Status Optional
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.pointerseparated by whitespace
Values For transcribed speech, this will typically identify a participant or participant group; in other contexts, it will point to any identified <person> element.

att.coordinated

att.coordinated elements which can be positioned within a two dimensional co-ordinate system

Module transcr
Members surface zone
Attributes In addition to global attributes
box identifies a rectangular area or bounding box by specifying four numbers, which give the x,y co-ordinates of the box's upper left corner, followed by the x,y co-ordinates of its lower right corner.
Status Optional
Datatype 4–4 occurrences of data.numericseparated by whitespace

att.damaged

att.damaged provides attributes describing the nature of any physical damage affecting a reading.

Module tei
Members damage damageSpan
Attributes In addition to global attributes
extent indicates approximately how much text is in the damaged area, in letters, minims, inches, or any appropriate unit, where this cannot be deduced from the contents of the tag.
Status Optional
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.wordseparated by whitespace
Values any measurement phrase, e.g. 25 letters, 2 × 3 inches.
hand In the case of damage (deliberate defacement, etc.) assignable to an identifiable hand, signifies the hand responsible for the damage.
Status Optional
Datatype data.pointer
Values must be one of the hand identifiers declared in the document header (see section ).
agent categorizes the cause of the damage, if it can be identified.
Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Sample values include:
rubbing damage results from rubbing of the leaf edges
mildew damage results from mildew on the leaf surface
smoke damage results from smoke
degree Signifies the degree of damage according to a convenient scale. The <damage> tag with the degree attribute should only be used where the text may be read with some confidence; text supplied from other sources should be tagged as <supplied>.

The <damage> tag with the degree attribute should only be used where the text may be read with confidence despite the damage. It is appropriate where it is desired to record the fact of damage, though this has not affected the readability of the text (as may be the case with weathered inscriptional materials). Where the damage has rendered the text more or less illegible either the <unclear> tag (for partial illegibility) or the <gap> tag (for complete illegibility, with no text supplied) should be used, with the information concerning the damage given in the attribute values of these tags. See section for discussion of the use of these tags in particular circumstances.

Status Optional
Datatype data.probability | data.certainty
Values an alphanumeric categorization of the degree of damage, as 0.4.
group assigns an arbitrary number to each stretch of damage regarded as forming part of the same physical phenomenon.
Status Mandatory when applicable
Datatype data.count

att.datable

att.datable provides attributes for normalization of elements that contain dates, times, or datable events.

Module tei
Members affiliation age application birth bloc climate country date death district education event faith floruit geogFeat langKnowledge langKnown location nationality occupation orgName persName placeName population region relation residence settlement sex socecStatus state terrain time trait
Attributes Global attributes and those inherited from [att.datable.w3c att.datable.iso ]
Note

This ‘superclass’ provides attributes that can be used to provide normalized values of temporal information. By default, the attributes from the att.datable.w3c class are provided. If the module for names & dates is loaded, this class also provides attributes from the att.datable.iso class. In general, the possible values of attributes restricted to the W3C datatypes form a subset of those values available via the ISO 8601 standard. However, the greater expressiveness of the ISO datatypes may not be needed, and there exists much greater software support for the W3C datatypes.

att.datable.iso

att.datable.iso provides attributes for normalization of elements that contain datable events using the ISO 8601 standard.

Module namesdates
Members att.datable [ affiliation age application birth bloc climate country date death district education event faith floruit geogFeat langKnowledge langKnown location nationality occupation orgName persName placeName population region relation residence settlement sex socecStatus state terrain time trait]
Attributes In addition to global attributes
when-iso supplies the value of a date or time in a standard form.Example

The following are examples of ISO date, time, and date & time formats that are not valid W3C format normalizations.

 <date when-iso="1996-09-24T07:25+00"
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">
Sept. 24th, 1996 at 3:25 in the morning</date>
 <date when-iso="1996-09-24T03:25-04">Sept. 24th, 1996 at 3:25 in the morning</date>
 <time when-iso="1999-01-04T20:42-05">4 Jan 1999 at 8:42 pm</time>
 <time when-iso="1999-W01-1T20,70-05">4 Jan 1999 at 8:42 pm</time>
 <date when-iso="2006-05-18T10:03">a few minutes after ten in the morning on Thu 18 May</date>
 <time when-iso="03:00">3 A.M.</time>
 <time when-iso="14">around two</time>
 <time when-iso="15,5">half past three</time>

All of the examples of the when attribute in the att.datable.w3c class are also valid with respect to this attribute.

Example
He likes to be punctual. I said  <q
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">

  <time when-iso="12">around noon</time>
 </q>,
and he showed up at
 <time when-iso="12:00:00">12 O'clock</time>
on the dot.

The second occurence of <time> could have been encoded with the when attribute, as 12:00:00 is a valid time with respect to the W3C XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes specification. The first occurence could not.

The value of when-iso should be the normalized representation of the date, time, or combined date & time in one of the formats specified in ISO 8601. The calendar attribute, if present, describes the calendar of the content of the element, not the calendar used for the when or when-iso attribute, which is always in the Gregorian or proleptic Gregorian calendar.

Status Optional
Datatype data.temporal.iso
Values Any string representing a valid date, time, or one of a variety of combinations.
notBefore-iso specifies the earliest possible date for the event in standard form, e.g. yyyy-mm-dd.
Status Optional
Datatype data.temporal.iso
Values A normalized form of temporal expression conforming ISO 8601.
notAfter-iso specifies the latest possible date for the event in standard form, e.g. yyyy-mm-dd.
Status Optional
Datatype data.temporal.iso
Values A normalized form of temporal expression conforming ISO 8601.
from-iso indicates the starting point of the period in standard form.
Status Optional
Datatype data.temporal.iso
Values A normalized form of temporal expression conforming ISO 8601.
to-iso indicates the ending point of the period in standard form.
Status Optional
Datatype data.temporal.iso
Values A normalized form of temporal expression conforming ISO 8601.
Note
If both when-iso and dur-iso are specified, the values should be interpreted as indicating a span of time by its starting time (or date) and duration. That is,
 <date when-iso="2007-06-01dur-iso="P8D"
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0"/>
indicates the same time period as
 <date when-iso="2007-06-01/P8D"
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0"/>

In providing a ‘regularized’ form, no claim is made that the form in the source text is incorrect; the regularized form is simply that chosen as the main form for purposes of unifying variant forms under a single heading.

att.datable.w3c

att.datable.w3c provides attributes for normalization of elements that contain datable events using the W3C datatypes.

Module tei

The value of the when attribute is a string representing a date, date & time, or time, in any one of the following forms:
  • a date in any of the standard formats described by XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition, i.e. most commonly yyyy-mm-dd, but also yyyy, --mm, ---dd, yyyy-mm, or --mm-dd
  • a time in the standard format described by XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition, i.e. hh:mm:ss
  • a combined date and time in any of the standard formats described by XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition, i.e. yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss

The value of when is constrained to be in one of the date, time, or combined date & time formats recognized by the W3C XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes specification. This is true whether the date component (if any) is a Gregorian or a proleptic Gregorian date.

At the time of this writing, the W3C does not permit the year 0000, which would normally be used to represent the year 1 BCE. Using the current W3C system, the year 1 BCE is indicated with -0001, the year 2 BCE with -0002, etc.
It is the intention of the XML Schema Working Group to allow 0000 as … the lexical representation of 1 BCE (which is a leap year), -0001 will become the lexical representation of 2 BCE, -0002 of 3 BCE, etc.
Thus in some cases it may be advantageous to use the when-iso attribute to indicate years BCE instead.
Status Optional
Datatype data.temporal.w3c
Values A normalized form of temporal expression conforming to the W3C XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition.
notBefore specifies the earliest possible date for the event in standard form, e.g. yyyy-mm-dd.
Status Optional

Values A normalized form of temporal expression conforming to the W3C XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition.
notAfter specifies the latest possible date for the event in standard form, e.g. yyyy-mm-dd.
Status Optional
Datatype data.temporal.w3c
Values A normalized form of temporal expression conforming to the W3C XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition.
from indicates the starting point of the period in standard form.
Status Optional
Datatype data.temporal.w3c
Values A normalized form of temporal expression conforming to the W3C XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition.
to indicates the ending point of the period in standard form.
Status Optional
Datatype data.temporal.w3c
Values A normalized form of temporal expression conforming to the W3C XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes Second Edition.
Note

If both when and dur are specified, the values should be interpreted as indicating a span of time by its starting time (or date) and duration. In order to represent a time range by a duration and its ending time the when-iso attribute must be used.

In providing a ‘regularized’ form, no claim is made that the form in the source text is incorrect; the regularized form is simply that chosen as the main form for purposes of unifying variant forms under a single heading.

att.declarable

att.declarable provides attributes for those elements in the TEI Header which may be independently selected by means of the specialpurpose decls attribute.

Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.pointerseparated by whitespace
Values A space-delimited series of sigla; each sigil should correspond to a witness or witness group and occur as the value of the xml:id attribute on a <witness> or <msDesc> element elsewhere in the document.
Note

The members of this attribute class are typically used to represent any kind of editorial intervention in a text, for example a correction or interpretation, or to date or localize manuscripts etc.

att.enjamb

att.enjamb (enjambement) groups elements bearing the enjamb attribute.

Module verse
Members l
Attributes In addition to global attributes
enjamb (enjambement) indicates that the end of a verse line is marked by enjambement.

The usual practice will be to give the value ‘yes’ to this attribute when enjambement is being marked, or the values ‘weak’ and ‘strong’ if degrees of enjambement are of interest; if no value is given, however, the attribute does not default to a value of ‘no’; this allows the attribute to be omitted entirely when enjambement is not of particular interest.

Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Sample values include:
no the line is end-stopped
yes the line in question runs on into the next
weak the line is weakly enjambed
strong the line is strongly enjambed

att.global

att.global provides a set of attributes common to all elements in the TEI encoding scheme.

Module tei
Members
Attributes In addition to global attributes and those inherited from [att.global.linking att.global.analytic att.global.facs ]
xml:space signals an intention that white space should be preserved by applications

The XML specification provides further guidance on the use of this attribute.

Status Optional
Legal values are:
default
preserve
xml:id (identifier) provides a unique identifier for the element bearing the attribute.

The xml:id attribute may be used to specify a canonical reference for an element; see section .

Status Optional
Datatype xsd:ID
Values any valid XML identifier .
n (number) gives a number (or other label) for an element, which is not necessarily unique within the document.

The n attribute may be used to specify the numbering of chapters, sections, list items, etc.; it may also be used in the specification of a standard reference system for the text.

Status Optional
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.wordseparated by whitespace
Values any string of characters; often, but not necessarily, numeric.
xml:lang (language) indicates the language of the element content using a ‘tag’ generated according to BCP 47

If no value is specified for xml:lang, the xml:lang value for the immediately enclosing element is inherited; for this reason, a value should always be specified on the outermost element (<TEI>).

Status Optional
Datatype data.language
Values The value must conform to BCP 47. If the value is a private use code (i.e., starts with x- or contains -x-) it should, and if not it may, match the value of an ident attribute of a <language> element supplied in the TEI Header of the current document.
rend (rendition) indicates how the element in question was rendered or presented in the source text.Example
 <head
   rend="align(center) slant(upright) case(allcaps)"
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">

  <lb/>To The
  <lb/>Duchesse
  <lb/>of
  <lb/>Newcastle,
  <lb/>On Her
  <lb/>
  <hi rend="case(mixed)">New Blazing-World</hi>.
 </head>

These Guidelines make no binding recommendations for the values of the rend attribute; the characteristics of visual presentation vary too much from text to text and the decision to record or ignore individual characteristics varies too much from project to project. Some potentially useful conventions are noted from time to time at appropriate points in the Guidelines.

Status Optional
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.wordseparated by whitespace
Values any string of characters; if the typographic rendition of a text is to be systematically recorded, a systematic set of values for the rend attribute should be defined.
xml:base provides a base URI reference with which applications can resolve relative URI references into absolute URI references.Example
 <div type="bibl"
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">

att.internetMedia

att.internetMedia provides attributes for specifying the type of a computer resource using a standard taxonomy

Module tei
Members binaryObject equiv graphic rendition
Attributes In addition to global attributes
mimeType (MIME media type) specifies the applicable multimedia internet mail extension (MIME) media type
Status Mandatory when applicable
Datatype data.word
Values The value should be a valid MIME media type
Note

This attribute class provides attrbiutes for describing a computer resource, typically available over the internet, according to standard taxonomies. At present only a single taxonomy is supported, the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions Media Type system. This system of typology of media types is defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force in RFC 2046. The list of types is maintained by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority.

att.interpLike

att.interpLike provides attributes for elements which represent a formal analysis or interpretation.

Module tei
Members interp interpGrp span spanGrp
Attributes In addition to global attributes
resp (responsible party) indicates who is responsible for the interpretation.

Status Optional
Datatype data.pointer
Values A pointer to an element indicating the person responsible for the interpretation, typically to a <respStmt> in the <teiHeader>.
type indicates what kind of phenomenon is being noted in the passage.
Status Recommended
Datatype data.enumerated
Sample values include:
image identifies an image in the passage.
character identifies a character associated with the passage.
theme identifies a theme in the passage.
allusion identifies an allusion to another text.
inst (instances) points to instances of the analysis or interpretation represented by the current element.

The current element should be an analytic one. The element pointed at should be a textual one.

Status Optional
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.pointerseparated by whitespace
Values One or more valid identifiers, separated by white space.

att.measurement

att.measurement provides attributes to represent a regularized or normalized measurement.

Module tei
Members measure measureGrp
Attributes In addition to global attributes
unit indicates the units used for the measurement, usually using the standard symbol for the desired units.

If the measurement being represented is not expressed in a particular unit, but rather is a number of discrete items, the unit count should be used, or the unit attribute may be left unspecified.

Wherever appropriate, a recognised SI unit name should be used (see further http://www.bipm.org/en/si/; http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/). The list above is indicative rather than exhaustive.

Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Suggested values include:
m (metre) SI base unit of length
kg (kilogram) SI base unit of mass
s (second) SI base unit of time
Hz (hertz) SI unit of frequency
Pa (pascal) SI unit of pressure or stress
(ohm) SI unit of electric resistance
L (litre) 1 dm³
t (tonne) 10³ kg
ha (hectare) 1 hm²
(ångström) 10⁻¹⁰ m
mL (millilitre)
cm (centimetre)
dB (decibel) see remarks, below
kbit (kilobit) 10³ or 1000 bits
Kibit (kibibit) 2¹⁰ or 1024 bits
kB (kilobyte) 10³ or 1000 bytes
KiB (kibibyte) 2¹⁰ or 1024 bytes
MB (megabyte) 10⁶ or 1 000 000 bytes
MiB (mebibyte) 2²⁰ or 1 048 576 bytes
quantity specifies the number of the specified units that comprise the measurement
Status Optional
Datatype data.numeric
commodity indicates the substance that is being measured

In general, when the commodity is made of discrete entities, the plural form should be used, even when the measurement is of only one of them.

Status Optional
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.wordseparated by whitespace
Note
This attribute class provides a triplet of attributes that may be used either to regularize the values of the measurement being encoded, or to normalize them with respect to a standard measurement system.

<!-- regularization: --> <l
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">
So weren't you gonna buy <measure quantity="0.5unit="galcommodity="ice cream">half a gallon</measure>, baby</l>
<!-- normalization: -->
 <l>So won't you go and buy <measure quantity="1.893unit="Lcommodity="ice cream">half a gallon</measure>, baby?</l>
Note

The unit should normally be named using the standard abbreviation for an SI unit (see further http://www.bipm.org/en/si/; http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/). However, encoders may also specify measurements using informally defined units such as lines or characters.

att.metrical

att.metrical defines a set of attributes which certain elements may use to represent metrical information.

Module verse
Members att.divLike [ div lg] att.segLike [ c cl m phr s seg w] l
Attributes In addition to global attributes
met (metrical structure, conventional) contains a user-specified encoding for the conventional metrical structure of the element.

Where this attribute is not specified, the metrical pattern for the element concerned is understood to be inherited from its parent.

Status Recommended
Datatype token
Values May contain either a standard term for the kind of metrical unit (e.g. hexameter) or an encoded representation for the metrical pattern (e.g. +--+-+-+-+-). In either case, the notation used should be documented by a <metDecl> element within the <encodingDesc> of the associated header.
real (metrical structure, realized) contains a user-specified encoding for the actual realization of the conventional metrical structure applicable to the element.

Where this attribute is not specified, the metrical realization for the element concerned is understood to be identical to that specified or implied for the met attribute.

Status Required when applicable
Datatype token
Values May contain either a standard term for the kind of metrical unit (e.g. hexameter) or an encoded representation for the metrical pattern (e.g. +--+-+-+-+-). In either case, the notation used should be documented by a <metDecl> element within the <encodingDesc> of the associated header.
rhyme (rhyme scheme) specifies the rhyme scheme applicable to a group of verse lines.

When the default notation is used, it does not make sense to specify this attribute on any unit smaller than a line. Nor does the default notation provide any way to record internal rhyme, or to specify non-conventional rhyming practice. These extensions would require user-defined alternative notations.

Status Recommended
Datatype token
Values By default, the rhyme scheme is expressed as a string of alphabetic characters each corresponding with a rhyming line. Any non-rhyming lines should be represented by a hyphen or an X. Alternative notations may be defined as for met by use of the <metDecl> element in the TEI header.

att.naming

att.naming provides attributes common to elements which refer to named persons, places, organizations etc.

Module tei

Status Optional
Datatype data.pointer
Values any valid URI
nymRef (reference to the canonical name) provides a means of locating the canonical form (nym) of the names associated with the object named by the element bearing it.

The value must point directly to an XML element containing the corresponding information, located within the current document or elsewhere and acccessible by a URI.

att.pointing

att.pointing defines a set of attributes used by all elements which point to other elements by means of one or more URI references.

Module linking
Members alt att.pointing.group [ altGrp joinGrp linkGrp] join link ptr ref
Attributes In addition to global attributes

Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Values The type should indicate the intended function of the pointer, or the rhetorical relationship between its source and target.
evaluate specifies the intended meaning when the target of a pointer is itself a pointer.

If no value is given, the application program is responsible for deciding (possibly on the basis of user input) how far to trace a chain of pointers.

Status Optional
Legal values are:
all if the element pointed to is itself a pointer, then the target of that pointer will be taken, and so on, until an element is found which is not a pointer.
one if the element pointed to is itself a pointer, then its target (whether a pointer or not) is taken as the target of this pointer.
none no further evaluation of targets is carried out beyond that needed to find the element specified in the pointer's target.

att.pointing.group

att.pointing.group defines a set of attributes common to all elements which enclose groups of pointer elements.

Module linking
Members altGrp joinGrp linkGrp
Attributes In addition to global attributes and those inherited from [att.pointing ]
domains optionally specifies the identifiers of the elements within which all elements indicated by the contents of this element lie.

If this attribute is supplied every element specified as a target must be contained within the element or elements named by it. An application may choose whether or not to report failures to satisfy this constraint as errors, but may not access an element of the right identifier but in the wrong context. If this attribute is not supplied, then target elements may appear anywhere within the target document.

Status Optional
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.nameseparated by whitespace
Values a list of at least two generic identifier names, separated by whitespace.
targFunc (target function) describes the function of each of the values of the targets attribute of the enclosed <link>, <join> or <alt> tags.

The number of separate values must match the number of values in the targets attribute in the enclosed <link>, <join> or <alt> tags (an intermediate <ptr> element may be needed to accomplish this). It should also match the number of values in the targType and domains attributes of the current tag, if those have been specified.

Status Optional
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.wordseparated by whitespace
Values a list of at least two valid names, separated by whitespace.

att.rdgPart

wit (witness or witnesses) contains a list of one or more sigla indicating the witnesses which begin or end at this point.
Status Mandatory when applicable
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.pointerseparated by whitespace
Values A space-delimited series of sigla; each sigil should correspond to a witness or witness group and occur as the value of the xml:id attribute on a <witness> element elsewhere in the document.
Note

These elements may appear anywhere within the elements <lem> and <rdg>, and also within any of their constituent elements.

att.segLike

att.segLike provides attributes for elements used for arbitrary segmentation.

Attributes In addition to global attributes and those inherited from [att.metrical ]
type characterizes the type of segment.
Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Values For a <cl> may take values such as finite, nonfinite, declarative, interrogative, relative etc. For a <phr> or <w>, values such as noun, verb, preposition, etc., may be used. For an <m> element, values such as clitic, prefix, stem will be more appropriate. For a <c> element, values such as letter, punctuation, digit may be used.
function characterizes the function of the segment.
Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Values For a <cl>, may take values such as coordinate, subject, adverbial etc. For a <phr>, such values as subject, predicate etc. may be more appropriate.
part specifies whether or not the segment is fragmented by some other structural element, for example a clause which is divided between two or more sentences.

The values I, M, or F should be used only where it is clear how the division is to be reconstituted.

Status Mandatory when applicable
Legal values are:
Y (yes) the segment is incomplete in some respect
N (no) either the segment is complete, or no claim is made as to its completeness [Default]
I (initial) the initial part of an incomplete segment
M (medial) a medial part of an incomplete segment
F (final) the final part of an incomplete segment

att.spanning

att.spanning provides attributes for elements which delimit a span of text by pointing mechanisms rather than by enclosing it.

Module tei
Members addSpan damageSpan delSpan index
Attributes In addition to global attributes
spanTo indicates the end of a span initiated by the element bearing this attribute.
Status Mandatory when applicable
Datatype data.pointer
Values points to an element following this one in the current document.
Note

The span is defined as running in document order from the start of the content of the pointing element (if any) to the end of the content of the element pointed to by the spanTo attribute (if any). If no value is supplied for the attribute, the assumption is that the span is coextensive with the pointing element.

att.tableDecoration

att.tableDecoration provides attributes used to decorate rows or cells of a table.

Module tei
Members cell row
Attributes In addition to global attributes
role indicates the kind of information held in this cell or in each cell of this row.

When this attribute is specified on a row, its value is the default for all cells in this row. When specified on a cell, its value overrides any default specified by the role attribute of the parent <row> element.

Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Suggested values include:
label labelling or descriptive information only.
data data values. [Default]
rows indicates the number of rows occupied by this cell or row.

Where several cells span several rows, it may be more convenient to use nested tables.

Status Optional
Datatype data.count
Values A number; a value greater than one indicates that this cellm (or row) spans several rows.
cols (columns) indicates the number of columns occupied by this cell or row.

Where an initial cell spans an entire row, it may be better treated as a heading.

Status Optional
Datatype data.count
Values A number; a value greater than one indicates that this cell or row spans several columns.

att.textCritical

att.textCritical defines a set of attributes common to all elements representing variant readings in text critical work.

Module textcrit
Members lem rdg rdgGrp
Attributes In addition to global attributes
wit (witness or witnesses) contains a list of one or more pointers indicating the witnesses which attest to a given reading.

If the apparatus contains readings only for a single witness, this attribute may be consistently omitted.

This attribute may occur both within an apparatus gathering variant readings in the transcription of an individual witness and within an apparatus gathering readings from different witnesses.

Additional descriptions or alternative versions of the sigla referenced may be supplied as the content of a child <wit> element.

Status Mandatory when applicable
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.pointerseparated by whitespace
Values A space-delimited series of sigla; each sigil should correspond to a witness or witness group and occur as the value of the xml:id attribute on a <witness> element elsewhere in the document.
type classifies the reading according to some useful typology.
Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Sample values include:
substantive the reading offers a substantive variant.
orthographic the reading differs only orthographically, not in substance, from other readings.
cause classifies the cause for the variant reading, according to any appropriate typology of possible origins.
Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Sample values include:
homeoteleuton
homeoarchy
paleographicConfusion
haplography
dittography
falseEmendation
varSeq (variant sequence) provides a number indicating the position of this reading in a sequence, when there is reason to presume a sequence to the variants on any one lemma.

Different variant sequences could be coded with distinct number trails: 1-2-3 for one sequence, 5-6-7 for another. More complex variant sequences, with (for example) multiple branchings from single readings, may be expressed through the <join> element.

Status Optional
Datatype data.count
Values a positive integer
resp (responsible party) identifies the editor responsible for asserting a particular reading in the witness.

This attribute is only available within an apparatus gathering variant readings in the transcription of an individual witness. It may not occur in an apparatus gathering readings from different witnesses.

Status Optional
Datatype data.pointer
Values A pointer to an element in the document header that is associated with a person asserted as responsible for some aspect of the text's creation, transcription, editing, or encoding (see chapter ).
hand signifies the hand responsible for a particular reading in the witness.

This attribute is only available within an apparatus gathering variant readings in the transcription of an individual witness. It may not occur in an apparatus gathering readings from different witnesses.

Status Optional
Datatype data.pointer
Values must be one of the hand identifiers declared in the document header (see section ).
Note

This element class defines attributes inherited by <rdg>, <lem>, and <rdgGrp>.

att.transcriptional

att.transcriptional provides attributes specific to elements encoding authorial or scribal intervention in a text when transcribing manuscript or similar sources.

Module tei
Members add addSpan del delSpan restore subst
Attributes In addition to global attributes and those inherited from [att.editLike ]
hand signifies the hand of the agent which made the intervention.
Status Optional
Datatype data.pointer
Values must refer to a <hand> element, typically declared in the document header (see section ).
status indicates the effect of the intervention, for example in the case of a deletion, strikeouts which include too much or too little text, or in the case of an addition, an insertion which duplicates some of the text already present.

Status information on each deletion is needed rather rarely except in critical editions from authorial manuscripts; status information on additions is even less common.

Marking a deletion or addition as faulty is inescapably an interpretive act; the usual test applied in practice is the linguistic acceptability of the text with and without the letters or words in question.

Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Sample values include:
duplicate all of the text indicated as an addition duplicates some text that is in the original, whether the duplication is word-for-word or less exact.
duplicate-partial part of the text indicated as an addition duplicates some text that is in the original
excessStart some text at the beginning of the deletion is marked as deleted even though it clearly should not be deleted.
excessEnd some text at the end of the deletion is marked as deleted even though it clearly should not be deleted.
shortStart some text at the beginning of the deletion is not marked as deleted even though it clearly should be.
shortEnd some text at the end of the deletion is not marked as deleted even though it clearly should be.
partial some text in the deletion is not marked as deleted even though it clearly should be.
unremarkable the deletion is not faulty. [Default]
seq (sequence) assigns a sequence number related to the order in which the encoded features carrying this attribute are believed to have occurred.
Status Mandatory when applicable
Datatype data.count

subtype provides a sub-categorization of the element, if needed

The subtype attribute may be used to provide any sub-classification for the element, additional to that provided by its type attribute.

Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Note

The typology used may be formally defined using the <classification> element of the <encodingDesc> within the associated TEI header, or as a list within one of the components of the <encodingDesc> element, or informally as descriptive prose within the <encodingDesc> element.

Note

This element class contains a subset of those elements which can appear in the unstructured ‘soup’ with which paragraph and other elements at the lowest level of crystal structures are filled: specifically all the elements which can also occur as structural elements in their own right. In prose, this means the elements in this class can appear both within and between paragraphs. This class is thus distinct from the purely phrase-level elements which can appear only within soup, and not on their own; the latter class, in keeping with this metaphor, is called ‘broth’; it is represented by the class phrase. Cf. also the class chunks.

<abbr> (abbreviation) contains an abbreviation of any sort. «#CONAAB»

Module core
Parents model.pPart.editorial model.choicePart
Attributes In addition to global attributes
type allows the encoder to classify the abbreviation according to some convenient typology.

The type attribute is provided for the sake of those who wish to classify abbreviations at their point of occurrence; this may be useful in some circumstances, though usually the same abbreviation will have the same type in all occurrences. As the sample values make clear, abbreviations may be classified by the method used to construct them, the method of writing them, or the referent of the term abbreviated; the typology used is up to the encoder and should be carefully planned to meet the needs of the expected use.

Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Sample values include:
suspension the abbreviation provides the first letter(s) of the word or phrase, omitting the remainder.
contraction the abbreviation omits some letter(s) in the middle.
brevigraph the abbreviation comprises a special symbol or mark.
superscription the abbreviation includes writing above the line.
acronym the abbreviation comprises the initial letters of the words of a phrase.
title the abbreviation is for a title of address (Dr, Ms, Mr, …)
organization the abbreviation is for the name of an organization.
geographic the abbreviation is for a geographic name.

Note

The <abbr> tag is not required; if appropriate, the encoder may transcribe abbreviations in the source text silently, without tagging them. If abbreviations are not transcribed directly but expanded silently, then the TEI header should so indicate.

cRefPattern

<cRefPattern> (canonical reference pattern) specifies an expression and replacement pattern for tranforming a canonical reference into a URI. «#HD54M» «#HD54» «#HD54S»

Module header
Parents refsDecl
Attributes In addition to global attributes
matchPattern specifies a regular expression against which the values of cRef attributes can be matched.

Parenthesised groups are used not only for establishing order of precedence and atoms for quantification, but also for creating subpatterns to be referenced by the replacementPattern attribute.

Status Required
Datatype data.pattern
Values must be a regular expression according to the W3C XML Schema Language
replacementPattern specifies a ‘replacement pattern’ which, once subpattern substitution has been performed, provides a URI.

The strings ‘$1’ through ‘$9’ are references to the corresponding group in the regular expression specified by re (counting open parenthesis, left to right). Processors are expected to replace them with whatever matched the corresponding group in the regular expression.

If a digit preceded by a dollar sign is needed in the actual replacement pattern (as opposed to being used as a back reference), the dollar sign must be written as %24.

Status Required
Datatype text
Values Should be the skeleton of a relative or absolute URI, with references to groups in the matchPattern.
Declaration
element cRefPattern
{
   att.global.attribute.xmlspace,
   att.global.attribute.xmlid,

   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0"/>
Note

The result of the substitution may be either an absolute or a relative URI reference. In the latter case it is combined with the value of xml:base in force at the place where the cRef attribute occurs to form an absolute URI in the usual manner as prescribed by XML Base.

cb

<cb> (column break) marks the boundary between one column of a text and the next in a standard reference system. «#CORS5»

Module core
Parents model.milestoneLike
Attributes In addition to global attributes
ed (edition) indicates the edition or version in which the column break is located at this point
Status Recommended
Datatype data.code
Values Any string of characters; usually a siglum conventionally used for the edition.
Declaration
element cb
{
   att.global.attribute.xmlspace,
   att.global.attribute.xmlid,
   att.global.attribute.n,
   att.global.attribute.xmllang,

   att.global.analytic.attribute.ana,
   att.global.facs.attribute.facs,
   attribute ed { data.code }?,
   empty
}
Note

On this element, the global n attribute indicates the number or other value associated with the column which follows the point of insertion of this <cb> element. Encoders should adopt a clear and consistent policy as to whether the numbers associated with column breaks relate to the physical sequence number of the column in the whole text, or whether columns are numbered within the page. By convention, the <cb> element is placed at the head of the column to which it refers.

Example

An American encoding of Gulliver's Travels which retains the British spelling but also provides a version regularized to American spelling might be encoded as follows.

 <p
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">
Lastly, That, upon his solemn oath to observe all the above articles, the said man-mountain shall have a daily allowance of meat and drink sufficient for the support of <choice>

  with free access to our royal person, and other marks of our
  <choice>
   <orig>favour</orig>
   <reg>favor</reg>
  </choice>.</p>
Note

Because the children of a <choice> element all represent alternative ways of encoding the same sequence, it is natural to think of them as mutually exclusive. However, there may be cases where a full representation of a text requires the alternative encodings to be considered as parallel.

Note also that <choice> elements may self-nest.

For a specialized version of <choice> for encoding multiple witnesses of a single work, see section .

cit

<cit> (cited quotation) contains a quotation from some other document, together with a bibliographic reference to its source.

Note

Since damage to text witnesses frequently makes them harder to read, the <damage> element will often contain an <unclear> element. If the damaged area is not continuous (e.g. a stain affecting several strings of text), the group attribute may be used to group together several related <damage> elements; alternatively the <join> element may be used to indicate which <damage> and <unclear> elements are part of the same physical phenomenon.

The <damage>, <gap>, <del>, <unclear> and <supplied> elements may be closely allied in use. See section for discussion of which element is appropriate for which circumstance.

Both the beginning and ending of the deleted sequence must be marked: the beginning by the <delSpan> element, the ending by the target of the spanTo attribute.

The text deleted must be at least partially legible, in order for the encoder to be able to transcribe it. If it is not legible at all, the <delSpan> tag should not be used.

See further sections and, for the close association of the <delSpan> tag with the <gap>, <damage>, <unclear> and <supplied> elements, .

The <delSpan> tag should not be used for deletions made by editors or encoders. In these cases, either the <corr> tag or the <gap> tag should be used.

Note

any sequence of low-level structural elements, possibly grouped into lower subdivisions.

divGen

<divGen> (automatically generated text division) indicates the location at which a textual division generated automatically by a text-processing application is to appear. «#CONOIX»

Module core
Parents div model.frontPart model.divGenLike
Attributes In addition to global attributes
type specifies what type of generated text division (e.g. index, table of contents, etc.) is to appear.

Valid values are application-dependent; those shown are of obvious utility in document production, but are by no means exhaustive.

Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Sample values include:
index an index is to be generated and inserted at this point.
toc (table of contents) a table of contents
figlist (figure list) a list of figures
tablist (table list) a list of tables
Declaration
element divGen
{
   att.global.attribute.xmlspace,
   att.global.attribute.xmlid,
   att.global.attribute.n,
   att.global.attribute.xmllang,
   att.global.attribute.rend,

   att.global.analytic.attribute.ana,
   att.global.facs.attribute.facs,
   attribute type { data.enumerated }?,
   model.headLike*
}
Example

One use for this element is to allow document preparation software to generate an index and insert it in the appropriate place in the output. The example below assumes that the indexName attribute on <index> elements in the text has been used to specify index entries for the two generated indexes, named NAMES and THINGS:

 <back
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">

  <div1 type="backmat">
   <head>Bibliography</head>
   <listBibl>
    <bibl/>
   </listBibl>
  </div1>
  <div1 type="backmat">
   <head>Indices</head>
   <divGen n="Index Nominumtype="NAMES"/>
   <divGen n="Index Rerumtype="THINGS"/>
  </div1>
 </back>
Example

Another use for <divGen> is to specify the location of an automatically produced table of contents:

 <front
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">

  <divGen type="toc"/>
  <div>
   <head>Preface</head>
   <p> ... </p>
  </div>
 </front>
Note

This element is intended primarily for use in document production or manipulation, rather than in the transcription of pre-existing materials; it makes it easier to specify the location of indices, tables of contents, etc., to be generated by text preparation or word processing software.

docAuthor

<docAuthor> (document author) contains the name of the author of the document, as given on the title page (often but not always contained in a byline). «#DSTITL»

Module textstructure
Parents byline model.titlepagePart model.divWrapper model.pLike.front
Attributes Global attributes only

}
Note

The document author's name often occurs within a byline, but the <docAuthor> element may be used whether the <byline> element is used or not.

docDate

<docDate> (document date) contains the date of a document, as given (usually) on a title page. «#DSTITL»

Module textstructure
Parents docImprint model.titlepagePart model.divWrapper model.pLike.front
Attributes In addition to global attributes
when gives the value of the date in standard form, i.e. YYYY-MM-DD.

For simple dates, the when attribute should give the Gregorian or proleptic Gregorian date in the form (YYYY-MM-DD) specified by XML Schema Part 2.

Status Optional

In the source of the TEI Guidelines, this element declares itself and its content as belonging to the namespace http://www.tei-c.org/ns/Examples. This enables the content of the element to be validated independently against the TEI scheme. Where this element is used outside this context, a different namespace or none at all may be preferable. The content must however be well formed XML: where this is not the case, the more general <eg> element should be used in preference.

Usually empty, unless some further clarification of the type attribute is needed, in which case it may contain running prose

For many literary texts, a simple binary opposition between ‘fiction’ and ‘fact’ is naïve in the extreme; this parameter is not intended for purposes of subtle literary analysis, but as a simple means of characterising the claimed fictiveness of a given text.

The global xml:lang attribute should be supplied for this element to identify the language of the word or phrase marked. As elsewhere its value should be a language code generated according to BCP 47 that represents the language in question. It is strongly recommended that the xml:lang attribute be consistently specified on all <foreign> elements.

This element is intended for use only where no other element is available to mark the phrase or words concerned. The global xml:lang attribute should be used in preference to this element where it is intended to mark the language of the whole of some text element.

The <distinct> element may be used to identify phrases belonging to sublanguages or registers not generally regarded as true languages.

The <fw> element is intended for cases where the running head changes from page to page, or where details of page layout and the internal structure of the running heads are of paramount importance.

gap

<gap> indicates a point where material has been omitted in a transcription, whether for editorial reasons described in the TEI header, as part of sampling practice, or because the material is illegible or inaudible. «#COEDADD»

Module core

Attributes In addition to global attributes and those inherited from [att.editLike ]
reason gives the reason for omission. Sample values include sampling, illegible, inaudible, irrelevant, cancelled, cancelled and illegible.
Status Optional
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of data.wordseparated by whitespace
Values any short indication of the reason for the omission.
hand in the case of text omitted from the transcription because of deliberate deletion by an identifiable hand, signifies the hand which made the deletion.
Status Optional
Datatype data.pointer
Values must be one of the hand identifiers declared in the document header (see section ).
agent In the case of text omitted because of damage, categorizes the cause of the damage, if it can be identified.
Status Optional
Datatype data.enumerated
Sample values include:
rubbing damage results from rubbing of the leaf edges
mildew damage results from mildew on the leaf surface
smoke damage results from smoke
extent indicates approximately how much text has been omitted from the transcription (using the unit specified on the unit attribute), either because of editorial policy or because a deletion, damage, or other cause has rendered transcription impossible.

It is possible, but not always necessary, to provide measurements precise to the millimeter or even to the printer's point. The degree of precision attempted will vary with the purpose of the encoding and the nature of the material.

Example

The most common use for the <head> element is to mark the headings of sections. In older writings, the headings or incipits may be rather longer than usual in modern works. If a section has an explicit ending as well as a heading, it should be marked as a <trailer>, as in this example:

 <div1 n="Itype="book"
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">

  <head>In the name of Christ here begins the first book of the ecclesiastical history of Georgius Florentinus, known as Gregory, Bishop of Tours.</head>
  <list>
   <head>Chapter-Headings</head>
  </list>
  <div2 type="section">
   <head>In the name of Christ here begins Book I of the history.</head>
   <p>Proposing as I do ...</p>
   <p>From the Passion of our Lord until the death of Saint Martin four hundred and twelve years passed.</p>
   <trailer>Here ends the first Book, which covers five thousand, five hundred and ninety-six years from the beginning of the world down to the death of Saint Martin.</trailer>
  </div2>
 </div1>
Example

The <head> tag is also used to mark headings of other units, such as lists:

With a few exceptions, connectives are equally useful in all kinds of discourse: description, narration, exposition, argument.  <list type="simple"
   xmlns:tei="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">

  <head>Connectives</head>
  <item>above</item>
  <item>accordingly</item>
  <item>across from</item>
  <item>adjacent to</item>
  <item>again</item>
  <item/>
 </list>
Note

The <head> element is used for headings at all levels; software which treats (e.g.) chapter headings, section headings, and list titles differently must determine the proper processing of a <head> element based on its structural position. A <head> occurring as the first element of a list is the title of that list; one occurring as the first element of a <div1> is the title of that chapter or section.

headItem

<headItem> (heading for list items) contains the heading for the item or gloss column in a glossary list or similar structured list. «#COLI»
