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.
Articles all published online after the successful print of the book.
Four distinct rebuilds of volume 25 after the proofing copy came back from the printers and we identified more issues. Are we there yet? Fingers crossed.
A bit more back-and-forth with HT and MB, but we're now ready, I think. Added final page numbers to article files.
Last corrections and queries dealt with over the weekend; rebuilt PDFs and P5, and rebuilt XAR and published. Then HT found more typos, which I fixed, finding some more myself in the process. There are still two questions waiting for an answer, but once they're done, I think we're ready.
Noticed a spacing issue on the cover; with feedback from HT, fixed it appropriately, and also tweaked a couple of other things.
