3 vol 27 reviews have their latest corrections.
The situation with validation of the various documents over the years has become complicated, so I've refactored it, so that documents from volumes 19 and below are validated only against the RNG schema (and all are valid), while those from 20 and above are validated against both the Schematron and the RNG schema. This involved quite a few fixes to many documents, but they were mainly minor (straight apostrophes to curly, rewriting biblStructs as bibls) with no impact on output. Other changes that do affect output included non-substantive (fixes to page-ranges to conform with Chicago; removing spaces around em dashes; etc.) and substantive (changing US to Canadian spelling). For substantive changes, I've added the appropriate revision elements, so the site will document them. I've also entered corrections to three articles and rebuilt the site, as well as working through the TODO folder so I know where to go from here.
Master volume documents are also now valid, so validating the whole collection is straightforward.
Entered corrections for two articles, and built and uploaded them; did a little more work on the Schematron; had some correspondence with both editors.
Tagged a vol 27 article and another vol 27 review, bringing me up to date with all outstanding vol 27 stuff. That will let me concentrate on vol 26 for a little while.
JN is moving forward with vol 14 quite quickly; I've built and rebuilt the PDFs for her to proof with, and fixed a couple of issues. I've also entered corrections for two articles and tagged three fresh reviews, two of which are up for proofing, while the third waits on a question to HT about bibliography vs inline refs.
Reactivated the lapsed ticket, and now ER is moving the process forward; I think he has everything he needs from our end, so this should go ahead soon.
Short article with a small biblio, so a good test for building everything on the new machine; no problems there.
As JN proceeds with her tagging of volume 14, we're discovering that there are lots of cases in which the old volumes do things that we don't currently allow (such as putting footnotes in article titles). I've had to add processing for those things. I'm developing separate guidelines for encoding these old articles on the basis that they're never going to get the fully-detailed encoding I usually do, but they need enough to ensure that they're rendered correctly, and at a pinch, this documentation could be provided to a future encoder replacing me on this journal, since it will work just fine for rapid encoding.
JN starts tomorrow, so in preparation I have:
- Created an XML encoding framework in the context of the scanning subfolder, with templates, validation and schemas copied from the main XML folder.
- Considerably simplified the RNG schema, which has all sorts of unwanted stuff. Much more to do here.
- Written the first few pages of an encoding guidelines document which will eventually form the basis of a proper set of encoding guidelines for anyone who inherits this project.
To provide HT with three articles to proof over the vacation, entered the corrections I had in my TODO; also updated bios in other articles, and published rebuild.
