Last piece for vol 24 encoded

Also added a couple of French abstracts. We're now on final tweaks for everything; one article's abstracts are too long and need to be cut, others may lack keywords, and final proofing is needed for everything. Also the intro articles are not there yet.

Completed Woolf while doing tech support

In between doing tech support for the SHARP and metal conferences, I've churned through the Woolf translation, and HT has sent me keywords, which I've entered. There are a couple of outstanding issues: underlining with <hi rend="underline"> works correctly in the PDF but not in the HTML, and I still have to make some decisions about the ellipses: do we need to continue with the old practice of tagging them, or can they just now be straightforward characters? In any case, there are instances of ellipsis and three-dots in this one document.

Woolf translation: poem and more of the intro done

Encoded the whole of the actual translation, mainly using s/r in gedit, because it's so well structured. Seems to be rendering well. Did a few more pages of the intro, and confirmed that there are no conventional endnotes; the Notes section is keyed to the stanza numbers.

Added new element and handling for it

For the new translation we definitely need the <caesura> element, so I have:

  • Manually added the element to the RNG file which I'm now maintaining as the P4 schema.
  • Added it to the content model of the <l> element.
  • Added handling for it in the output to XHTML5 and PDF, and tested.
  • Added handling for it in the P5 output, and tested.

Started on Woolf translation: more font issues

I've set up the framework file for the new translation, which is huge, and done a bunch of search-and-replace by style in an ODT version to cut down on the encoding work. We already have one font problem: one of the headers (which are bold) includes the title of a work (which is italic), and the bold/italic font that we fall back to is impoverished with regard to Unicode character ranges, so the o with ogonek is lost. I've had to add an extra tag around that title where it appears in these contexts (<hi rend="normal">) to unset the bold for that specific text run. I think I've had to do this before.

Fix for missing para in review; set up Volume 24

NVD sent proofing corrections for her review, and it turned out I'd built it before adding the final para. That's now done. Then set up the master file for Volume 24, as well as two empty placeholders for the editorial intros, and built the result to see how long it is (168 pages). It's still missing one translation, so it'll be more substantial in the end.

Lingard corrections entered; new review encoded

Minor editorial corrections for Lingard translation done; new review by NVD encoded. Due to the small size of the site, my current publication method is simply to rebuild the entire webapp and push it up to eXist.
