Updates for integration of personography

  • Created a personography file.
  • Entered two lists of people: editors and informants. The Informants list contains one <personGrp> for the dual informant "Y"; otherwise it's all <person>.
  • Generated a new schema to support the <particDesc> element and to add @corresp to <bibl>. In this I was frustrated by two things: firstly Roma has a bug (which I've reported on SF) whereby including the corpus module but then excluding the majority of its elements results in the exclusion of <particDesc> even when <particDesc> is not explicitly excluded, so I was forced to add the entirety of the corpus module. Secondly, oXygen has an annoying habit of deciding to validate files using tei_all instead of the explicitly-linked schema, which means you often don't realize your schema is screwed for ages.
  • Ran some XSLT with today's regex of the day (constructed with an XPath concat()):
    concat('(^', ., '[\d]+)|([\s]+', ., '[\d]+)|([\s]+', ., '[\s]*$)|(^', ., ';)|([\s]+', ., ';)|(^[\s]*', ., '[\s]*$)')
    to formalize all references to people in <bibl> (through added @corresp), @who and @resp so they use a psn: pseudo-protocol which we will map to the personography file.

Next stage: go through SMK's markup documentation and integrate its key info into the formal documentation, and at the same time explain the use of the pseudo-protocol, to bring our docs up to date.

This is an XML dictionary project based primarily on the materials compiled by the late M. Dale Kinkade during fifteen years of work in the 1960’s and 1970’s with more than a dozen native speakers of the language, but it also includes materials compiled by Ewa Czaykowska-Higgins in the early 1990’s.
