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.

Layout tweaks and fixes

CC provided a list of rendering issues in a lot of documents, which I've worked through. In the process, I've fixed some XSLT and CSS, abstracted some rendering rules into rendition elements for the longer documents, and done a lot of clean-up. All reported problems are I think fixed, but there are more to come. There's also more rationalization of styles that could be done on Espines and Maladies.

Lots of progress on primary source and normalization

Added handlers for marginal labels in the normalized text (they show up always on the left, leaving the page numbers unencumbered on the right). Standardized all the marg labels in the Ville Thierry, and fixed a bunch of issues with untyped fws in Le Bon Mariage. Tested a freshly-built version of the site in the brand-new eXist 3.3.

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.
