TITLE: The Early South-English Legendary
ED.  Carl Horstmann
PUBLISHED: Early English Text Society 87 (1887)


En-face? NO.

Key and code the following pages:

  1. Title page (front and back)  = pages [iii-iv]
  2. Table of Contents            = pages v-vi
  3. Main text and Appendix       = pages 1-496


  <FRONT> contains the title page and table of contents 
  <BODY> contains most of the book, divided into two
    major divisions (<DIV1>s), containing the main text
    (pp.1-483) and the Appendix (pp.85-496)
    respectively. These are subdivided into the 
    sixty saints' legends, numbered 10-67 (main text) and
    73-74 (appendix), as listed in the table of contents.
     are used to separate the main text (pp.1-483)
     from the Appendix (pp.85-496).
     are used to mark each of the sixty saints' legends,
     as listed in the table of contents and supplied with
     numbers and headings in the text.
  Smaller Divisions
     Use <LG> as necessary to indicate breaks in the
     verse--especially when a break is marked by a
     large initial capital letter.

  Folio references appear in the margin in brackets, like 
   [fol. 85]        <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="85">
   [fol. 85 b.]     <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="85b">
   [fol. 86]        <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="86">
   [fol. 86 b.]     <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="86b">
  Most of the time, these appear next to a line of verse,
  in which case place the <MILESTONE> tag at the end of that
  <L> element. Sometimes, there is insufficient room in 
  the margin, and the folio reference is instead linked
  to the right line by a footnote number. In that case,
  place the <MILESTONE> tag wherever the footnote number
  is placed in the text--always at the end of a line, as
  far as I've noticed.

 * Editorial notes are squeezed in everywhere in this book: 
  usually in the margin or between the lines when they
  won't fit in the margin, keyed to the text by 
  footnote-style reference numbers. Always look for the nearest
  corresponding number in the text, since the same note number 
  often appears several times on one page. Treat these 
  as usual, except that the value of the PLACE attribute 
  should be "marg1" in order to distinguish these notes from...
 * Other notes in the margin. There are many words and 
  phrases in the margin that are *not* supplied with 
  note numbers. Encode these as <NOTE PLACE="marg2">,
  and place the tag wherever it seems to apply--usually
  the *beginning* of the line, or the beginning of the
  section, next to which the note appears. Example, p.123:
  <L N="600">homage he scholde don to him : are he j-confermed were.'</L>
  <NOTE PLACE="marg2">vj<SUP>a</SUP>.</NOTE>
  &para; &THORN;e sixte was, '&yogh;if ani plait : to chapitle were i-drawe</L>
  <L>And ani man made ani apel : &yogh;if men duden him a-&yogh;en lawe,</L>
  <L>&THORN;at to &thorn;e bischop fram &thorn;e Ercedekne : his apel [he]
  <NOTE PLACE="marg1">om.</NOTE></L>
