Last article encoded, master volume created

Encoded the whole of the final article in one session, using the style-based search-and-replace method in LibreOffice before moving it into Oxygen. This process is getting much faster, particularly now I have the special browser-based tagging assistant for bibliographies (as long as they're well-formatted coming in). That's now posted for proofing, and I've also put together the master volume file for vol 25, which is currently at 151 pages.

Finished next article

There will definitely be some tweaks require here; the tables are not optimal. But we're good for proofing.

First half of next article encoded

This one had a pretty messy bibliography, and it also has nested tables, which will take a bit of work since we haven't had them before.

Author's proofing corrections entered for Coughlin article

New abstract is a bit long, but otherwise all good, I think.

Next vol 25 article mostly done

About one third of the text left to do, but it's already pre-encoded from the ODT file so it's very quick. Should finish tomorrow.

Next vol 25 article started

Fixed a bug in the previous one, and set up the next one; encoded the whole bibliography, and then did a pile of automated markup on the rest of the document, pulling the notes into place, tagging quotes and a lot of other stuff. What remains should be a fairly quick job. It's a long and complicated article.
