For the diplomatic transcriptions in the library, we need to display the source on every page but there isn't always a piece of text to encode with the ref element (type="bibl"). Janelle's short-term solution for Chruso-thriambos is to add a bracketed note to each page with information about the documentary witness and to tag the author's name in that information.
It would be better, however, to include the bibliographical information about the documentary witness in the TEI header and tell the processor to display this information on every page. The TEI element to use is sourceDesc. Ask Stewart how to make this info display.
Christ Church, Newgate Street (XML:ID CHRI1) was also known as Greyfriars from his previous history. QUERY: can we put Greyfriars and Christ Church, Newgate on the index with the same id?
The paragraph element tells text to reproduce as a block with a line of white space between it and the previous and subsequent paragraphs. This is a problem in diplomatic transcriptions where there is no space between original paragraphs and/or where the first line of the paragraph is indented. At the moment, if we add a rend="indent" attribute, the whole paragraph moves over as a block by the amount specified.
The list of sources is not alphabetizing correctly authors whose names begin with a lower-case letter (e.g., van Buchell, Arend) or entries that have a title but no author (e.g., links to "Whitefriars" page on a website). Note that some of the latter appear at the beginning of the sources and some at the end, even though they are scattered alphabetically by title throughout the bibl.xml file.
We would like them to order as follows:
Ask Stewart to create a new rule in the schema that will tell the processor to alphabetize as above.
Literary References and any pages that are not street/site articles are not showing up under "Contributions by this Author." For example, PM transcribed the literary references for 2IYKNMYKN but her work is not credited on her page.
In cases where we have already created a page for a site/street, the title at the top of the Literary References page appears thus: Literary References for Cheapside.In cases where we have assigned an XML:ID but not created a page, the title at the top of the Literary References page appears thus: Literary References for . As an example, click on the Literary References link in the More Info box for Lombard Street.
Is there some other way to retrieve the name of the street/site? MC thinks that the Lit Refs page (dynamically generated) is fetching the title from the .xml page. If there isn't a .xml page, then where can we get the title?
Made some changes to the Personography. We are now following the name of a fictional character with the phrase "; fictional character" (note that we separate the character's name from the phrase with a semi-colon), which shows up on the Personography table. In the .xml file that underlies the Personography, we indicate (commented out) in which plays/texts the character appears. At some point, it may be possible to do more with this information. Characters like Queen Elizabeth appear in many post-1603 texts. Clicking on her name will bring up a list of pages in which this character is mentioned, including all of the plays excerpted to date. This dynamically generated list may or may not be exhaustive of all the early modern texts in which the character appears.
In encoding the literary references, we are now tagging the speech prefixes and names of characters within speeches with the xml:id tag that points to the fictional character. The first play to be encoded in this way is 2 If You Know Not Me You Know Nobody.Ask Stewart:
This project allows literary and scholarly works (primary and secondary) to be associated with locations in London, providing the reader with a richer understanding of the works.
