Martin's Comments on the simple_template in an email to Janelle on 2012-05-15:
The template looks fine. The only thing I noticed that I'd reconsider is the use of the
<segmentation> element. I'm not quite sure how that got into our documents in the first place:
<>> describes the principles according to which the text has been segmented, for example into sentences, tone-units, graphemic strata, etc. [2.3.3 The Editorial Practices Declaration 15.3.2 Declarable Elements]"
We don't really have much to say about that; segmentation isn't a major issue for us, especially in the born-digital documents such as Location files.
I think what we should probably have is:
- One file on the site where we detail all of our transcription and encoding practices for the original documents such as Stow;
- Another file on the site where we detail our markup practices for the born-digital/modern content;
- Something like this in the encodingDesc of every other file:
</ref>for full details of transcription and encoding used in this document.
We do have to produce those files first, though. We should start with the original document encoding practices, which we need to lay out in some detail before the work on Stow begins in earnest.
