Tagging the letter, tagging the word [074]

Abstract

Application of <sic>, <orig>, and <abbr> at the word and letter level

Discussion

When using the elements <sic> and <orig>, the WWP will apply them to individual letters (or letter groups which require the same tag), not to the entire word where they appear.

When using the element <abbr>, the WWP will apply it to the unit which is abbreviated, whatever that may be in the given case:

a single brevigraph such as a letter with a macron or superscript: <abbr expan="em">&emacr;</>

a word-length abbreviation: <abbr expan="Obedient">Ob’t.</>
