    with TYPE="part" are used to record two major 
    parts of the book, which are numbered "I" and 
    "II". <DIV1>s with TYPE="appendix" are also
    used for the appendix ("Anhang") attached to
    each of the numbered parts:
    (1) I. North-english legend collection
        = pp. [1]-173.
       (2) Appendix
           = pp. [174]-[188]
    (3) II. Individual legends (except legend
        no. 24) = pp. 209-471.
       (4) Appendix
           = pp. [489]-526.
    with TYPE="legend" are used in the first, third, and fourth
    <DIV1> to mark the items numbered with arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, etc.)
    (the brief introductory verses to the first <DIV1> can 
    also be coded as an unnumbered <DIV2> with TYPE="prolog"), 
    that is, e.g.:
        <HEAD>Incipit  hic tratatus de legenda sanctorum.</HEAD>
    (1) <DIV2 TYPE="prolog">
    (2) <DIV2 TYPE="legend" N="1">
        <HEAD>1. De s. Andrea apostolo historia
        <NOTE TYPE="head">Diese, die Sammlung des Ms. Harl. 4196 ...
    (3) <DIV2 TYPE="legend" N="2">
        <HEAD>2. Hic incipit historia de s. Nicholao episcopo.</HEAD>
    (4) <DIV2 TYPE="legend" N="3">
        <HEAD>3. De s. Lucia virgine historia.</HEAD>
    One or two of these legends have an appendix ("Anhang"
    or "Beilage") attached. Treat these as unnumbered <DIV2>s 
    with TYPE="appendix". Examples: pp. 77-81 or pp. [236]-241.
    <DIV2>s with type="legend" are used in the first appendix 
    (pp. [174]-208) to mark off the two legends: 
    (1) Alexius (pp. [174]-[188])
    (2) Machor  (pp. [189]-208)
    with TYPE="section" are used in the <DIV2>s of the 1st and
    third <DIV1> whenever a legend is divided by unnumbered
    headings (generally in larger type). E.g., p. 116:
    </DIV3><DIV3><HEAD>De corpore beate Marie virginis.</HEAD>
    (German phrases in small bold type between the lines are
    not headings but interlinear <NOTE>s. For example: "Hier 
    beginnt andere Hand" p. 99 and p. 199; "Hier fehlt
    1 Blatt im Ms." p. 201; "Hier fehlen eine oder zwei
    Strophen" p. 214)
    <DIV3>s with TYPE="version" are used in the legend 
    of St. Alexius (pp. [174]-[188]) to mark off the
    two version of the legend:
    (1) MS. Ashmole 42 (left columns)
    (2) MS. Cambridge Gg.5.31 (right columns)
    ...also in the legend of Seynt Katerine (pp.[242]-
    259) to mark off the two versions:
    (1) Auchinleck MS (left columns through the top
        of page [258]);
    (2) Caius College MS 175 (right columns through
        the top of page [258]), both columns at
        the bottom of page [258], and both columns
        on page [259].
    <DIV3>s with TYPE="prolog" and TYPE="book" are
    used in legend number 20 of the third <DIV1>
    (S. Edmund und Fremund), to mark off the
    Prolog and the three Books ("I. Buch" etc.).
    <DIV3>s with TYPE="fragment" are used in the
    second legend of the final appendix (pp.
    [499]-504) to mark off the two fragments:
    (1) I. Auchinleck (pp. [499]-502).
    (2) II. De miraculo beate Marie, Thornton MS
        (pp. [503]-504).

    with TYPE="section" are used to subdivide some
    of the <DIV3>s above (e.g. the Books and Prolog
    of Individual Legend 20) whenever unnumberd
    headings appear.

  are used whenever a true stanzaic layout appear, e.g.
  in the first and second legends of the third <DIV1>, which
  are printed in 6-line stanzas; or in the third legend
  of the third <DIV1>, which is printed in 4-line stanzas;
  or in the fourth legend of the third <DIV1>, which is
  printed in 8-line stanzas. Also wherever there are
  clear verse paragraphs (e.g. marked by a large initial
  cap and blank line).

  Folio references appear at the edge of the text in small
  type (not quite in the margins), like this:

  fol. 134      =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="134">
  fol. 135      =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="135">
  fol. 137      =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="137">
  fol. 15       =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="15">
  fol. 143 b    =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="143b">
  fol. 145      =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="145">


  Most of the notes are footnotes tied to line numbers, or
  ranges of line numbers, in the text. 
    Notes tied to line numbers should be treated as usual 
    (placing the note in the text at the end of the appropriate
    line and removing the line number from the note).
    Notes tied to line number ranges ("33-50") should also
    be treated as usual (placing the note in the text at the
    end of the last line in the range, but *retaining* the
    line numbers in the note).
    Some texts use two sets of footnotes: e.g. on page 55,
    there are two notes to lines 81 and 114, then, separated
    by a horizontal line, there is a second block of notes 
    to lines 61, 63-4, 65, 66, 67, 69, 70, 71-72, 73, 74-75, 
    76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, etc. When there are two
    sets of footnotes, tag them as <NOTE PLACE="foot1"> and
    <NOTE PLACE="foot2">. As usual.
  Many of the items (divisions) contain some kind of introductory
  material; some of the sets of notes contain introductory
  phrases or sentences prior to the start of the line-by-line
  notes. Most of this material can be handled as head notes,
  <NOTE PLACE="head"> attached to the heading <HEAD> for the
  division. Sometimes, but not always, this material is
  explicitly linked to the heading by a reference number
  or asterisk.
