Tweaks to build process XSLT

After seeing a problem in the rendering of a closer in Sonnet 1609, I discovered that we have no template handling closers, so I've added it to the generic block output template. Then CC and I worked to refine the rendering of one particular closer that was giving trouble.

We then addressed the issue of spaces before commas, which are possibly accidentals and possibly not; rather than remove them or regularize them in the TEI, we decided to remove the spaces in the normalized versions of the texts, so I've now added that to the hcmc:processText() function.

Fixes for weird document structure

There were several instances in which document content such as figure and head elements was directly inside the front or body, without any intervening div. This was causing rendering issues -- head element styles were being lost, for example. I fixed all instances of this, and added a Schematron rule to prevent it in future.

We've also devised a bit of an encoding hack, involving nested date elements, to get around the TEI's decision not to allow @when alongside other attributes on dates. CC will implement it by examining all cases, and then I'll deal with any processing fallout as required.

Working on "other documents linking to this" functionality

Gradually figuring out the best way to include the list of other documents which link to a reference or a bibliography item. I'm coming around to the view that the way to do this is to put the list into the AJAX fragments (already done for references, not working for divs yet), and replace any existing link or reference in an HTML document with the content of the AJAX fragment (slightly processed to remove links to the current document itself, perhaps).

Fixes for Le Bon Mariage

This document had some very weird structural issues caused during an earlier phase of encoding, which resulted in a large number of superfluous div elements and some chapter content finding itself outside of its chapter div. With CC, went through and fixed all these issues.

Starting on Mariage documentation

I'm finally getting around to writing proper ODD-based documentation for the Mariage project, starting with a description of the use of Image Markup in the project, prompted by a request to talk about it. I've done an intro, and the section on the IMT and image markup in the project. More later...

Problem with Sonnet 1609

Somehow the 1609 Sonnet file got completely trashed sometime in July; it's as if huge blocks of the XML were moved around randomly, with no attention paid to the hierarchy, and it's now completely invalid. It looks unfixable to me. CC agreed on resetting to the last known good rev 1770.

eXist xar rebuilt and deployed

Just to bring it up to date. Noticed that eXide seems to be broken on Chromium. Seems to work OK on FF.

EC now working on XML/svn; tweaking to Ville-Thierry

Got EC set up and working with svn, and doing basic linking from the VT doc to the references. Worked with CC to do a bunch of layout fixes for the VT text, which is looking a lot better; we found a block of badly-encoded rubbish right at the end, though, which we started on, and which CC will finish.

Faut-il se marier? La question de Panurge s’avère incontournable en Occident, surtout à partir de la contre-réforme. Des débuts de la Concile de Trente en 1545 jusqu’à la fin du règne de Louis XIV, la tentative de renouveler le mariage se heurte en France à l’intervention croissante de la monarchie dans cette institution dominée auparavent par l’Église. La rencontre entre ces deux autorités fut tumultueuse mais propice au foisonnement des documents qui font l’objet de ce site : « l’imaginaire nuptial » se compose de divers genres textuels, chacun ayant son caractère propre, mais tous traitant des peurs, des désirs et des fantasmes de plus en plus visibles dans la société d’Ancien Régime grâce aux débats soulevés par la nouvelle problématique de l’union conjugale. L’accent pour le moment est sur les textes et images misogames qui font partie d’un renouveau de la Querelle des femmes pendant les 25 premières années du XVIIe siècle.
