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:
- Can we make the cells on the Personography table wider? Now that we are including more information, some of the cells are wrapping unnecessarily. We have lots of white space to play with on this page.
- We have had a page for St. Mary-le-Bow Churchyard but not for St. Mary-Le-Bow Church (now ID STMA25). Check that refs previously are pointing to the correct page. Problem became apparent while JJ encoding lit refs from 2 IYKNMYKN
