First Pass: Preparing a basic text for encoding.
Second Pass (depends on time and the instructions from JJ).
If you are putting the information into comment bubbles:
If you are printing out the file, highlighting locations, people, bibl items, and other features you want to flag for the encoder:
JJ, MS, and CB have started to use the title level="a" markup for articles, both in the BIBL1.xml file and in the markup of pages where an article title appears.
Current rendering code puts quotation marks around article titles. We note, however, that MLA style and MoEML house style call for commas and periods to be INSIDE quotation marks, even if they are not part of the quotation. Colons, semi-colons, exclamation marks, and question marks remain outside the quotation marks.
The rendering code we need will pull a following period or comma into the quotes but leave a following colon, semi-colon, or question mark outside the quotes.
If the question mark is part of the title, then it will be inside the title tag anyway and will be automatically included inside the quotation marks.
Priority: Sometime this summer. We can leave with a few stray commas until MH has time to write the code.
Right now, the titles of articles are not showing up in our handy list of all XML:ids used in the site. Let's try adding the title level="a" tag to a couple of articles, then checking out what displays on http://mapoflondon.uvic.ca/ids.htm. I've asked MS to undertake this task next week. If titles do not show up, we'll ask MH to adjust the programming.
Added a new folder to the Subversion repository called "working_files." This folder is where we can store spreadsheets, workbooks, Word files, and OpenOffice files that we are sharing and storing in the process of preparing articles and texts for the site.
Important! File names must not contain spaces or punctuation.
