Acts and scenes [040]

Abstract

Encoding of dramatic acts and scenes, using <div type="act"> and <div type="scene">

Discussion

The WWP follows TEI in using <div type="act"> and <div type="scene"> to tag acts and scenes in dramatic texts. Either may be omitted in plays which have only one level of subdivision; for instance, a play might be divided into acts but not scenes, or into scenes without any grouping into acts. For plays without any internal subdivisions, we encode the entire play as <text type="drama"> and omit any internal <div> elements within <body>.
