Meeting re future plans and the current vol

Met with HT to plan the next three volumes, and to go through some of the proofing corrections for vol 24. I have four texts ready to be worked on. Spent some time fixing up the layout of the Woolf text, to avoid unwanted wrapping of poetic half-line in PDF.

Lingard abstracts chopped; volume PDF built

HT truncated the abstracts for Lingard so they fit on the page; rebuilt everything and published, and also posted the full vol 24 PDF for proofing (although editorial intros are still missing).

Various edits, and one new review

Encoded the new Virtanen review and added it to the master; added two lots of keywords; re-encoded a revised version of the Peterson review, then more changes to that; and various other tweaks.

Last piece for vol 24 encoded

Also added a couple of French abstracts. We're now on final tweaks for everything; one article's abstracts are too long and need to be cut, others may lack keywords, and final proofing is needed for everything. Also the intro articles are not there yet.

Completed Woolf while doing tech support

In between doing tech support for the SHARP and metal conferences, I've churned through the Woolf translation, and HT has sent me keywords, which I've entered. There are a couple of outstanding issues: underlining with <hi rend="underline"> works correctly in the PDF but not in the HTML, and I still have to make some decisions about the ellipses: do we need to continue with the old practice of tagging them, or can they just now be straightforward characters? In any case, there are instances of ellipsis and three-dots in this one document.

Woolf translation: poem and more of the intro done

Encoded the whole of the actual translation, mainly using s/r in gedit, because it's so well structured. Seems to be rendering well. Did a few more pages of the intro, and confirmed that there are no conventional endnotes; the Notes section is keyed to the stanza numbers.

Added new element and handling for it

For the new translation we definitely need the <caesura> element, so I have:

  • Manually added the element to the RNG file which I'm now maintaining as the P4 schema.
  • Added it to the content model of the <l> element.
  • Added handling for it in the output to XHTML5 and PDF, and tested.
  • Added handling for it in the P5 output, and tested.

Bibliography for Woolf article done

Tweaked and improved my tagging tool JavaScript. This goes very smoothly nowadays.
