SHORT BATCH DESIGNATION: BJ ID # ANY9948 TITLE: Lydgate's Reson and Sensuallyte ED. Ernest Sieper PUBLISHED: Early English Text Society Extra Series 84, 89 (1901, 1903) SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS En-face? NO. Key and code the following pages: 1. Title page (front and back) = images 00000007.tif-00000008.tif 2. Main text = pp. 1-184 = images 00000025.tif-00000208.tif Structure <FRONT> contains the title page only. <BODY> contains most of the book. <DIV1>s with TYPE="section" are used to encode the sections marked by bold headings. For example (p.2): ¶ Cy comence Lauctour son trayte. <DIV1 TYPE="section"> <HEAD>¶ Cy comence Lauctour son trayte.</HEAD> Note that there are some bits in bold text that are *not* headings. Headings always have a blank line before them. Smaller divisions Divide the verse text into verse lines (<L>). There does not seem to be a need to use line-groups (<LG>). Milestones Folio references appear in brackets in the margins. They look like this: [leaf 245] = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="245"> [leaf 245, bk.] = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="245b"> [leaf 246] = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="246"> [leaf 246, bk.] = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="246b"> Notes Notes appear alongside the text, not quite in the margin (usually between the text and the printed line numbers), sometimes keyed to the text with reference numbers and sometimes not. Those that have reference numbers should be inserted in the text at the appropriate place, as usual; those that lack reference numbers should be inserted at the end of the line next to which they appear, also as usual. Use <NOTE PLACE="marg"> for both. Characters Some odd characters appear (e.g. "n" with an upswept final stroke, "h" with a cross-bar, etc.). These should be treated as simple "n," simple "h," etc. See Keying/Coding guidelines. Special problems The margin of each page is headed with an underlined word or name ("The Author" "Diana" "Venus"). Treat these as running heads, i.e. ignore them. Omit the modern English summaries in the margin as usual.
