List of Tags in the TEILITE.DTD

Note: This list does not include tags in the header, which are covered in the TEI Header section.

This document is extracted from the TEI Guidelines.


The global attributes are as follows:

For texts processed at Uva, all attribute values are to be placed in double quotation marks.


<abbr> contains an abbreviation of any sort.

May contain: #PCDATA abbr add address anchor corr date del emph foreign formula gap gi gloss hi mentioned name num orig ptr ref reg rs s seg sic soCalled term time title xptr xref unclear

Attributes: global, plus the following:
<abbr type="acronym">RSVP</abbr>
<abbr type="organization">SPQR</abbr>
<abbr type="contraction">yr hbl servt</abbr>
<abbr type="brevigraph">&per;</abbr>

The type="" attribute is provided for the sake of those who wish to classify abbreviations at their point of occurrence; this may be useful in some circumstances, though usually the same abbreviation will have the same type in all occurrences. As the sample values make clear, abbreviations may be classified by the method used to construct them, the method of writing them, or the referent of the term abbreviated; the typology used is up to the encoder and should be carefully planned to meet the needs of the expected use.


Example:
<abbr type="organization" expan="senatus populusque romanorum" resp="author">SPQR</abbr>

In the full TEI guidelines (but not in TEILITE) there is also the <expan> tag. The <abbr> tag is the mirror image of the <expan> tag; both allow the encoder to transcribe both an abbreviation and its expansion. In <abbr>, however, the original is transcribed as the content of the element and the expansion as an attribute value; <expan> reverses this.


<add> contains letters, words, or phrases inserted in the text by an author, scribe, annotator or corrector.

May contain: abbr add address anchor bibl biblFull cit corr date del emph figure foreign formula gap gi gloss hi l label lang lg list mentioned name note num orig p ptr q ref reg rs s seg sic soCalled sp stage table term text time title xptr xref

Attributes: global, plus the following:

Remarks: The <add> tag should not be used for additions made by editors or encoders. In these cases, the <corr> tag should be used. [The full TEI tagset also has the <supplied> tag for this purpose].


<address> Contains a postal or other address (i.e., publisher, organization, individual).

May contain: <addrline> for each line of an address

Attributes: global only
<addrline> : contains one line of a postal or other address.

May contain: #PCDATA abbr add address anchor corr date del emph foreign formula gap gi gloss hi mentioned name num orig ptr ref reg rs s seg sic soCalled term time title xptr xref unclear

Attributes: global only
<anchor> [empty tag]: attaches an identifier to a point within a text, whether or not it corresponds with a textual element.

Attributes: global

Note: id is required. It supplies an arbitrary name, unique within the document, used to identify the point at which this element occurs.

Example:
<s>The anchor is he<anchor id="A234">re somewhere.</s> <s>Help me find it.<ptr target="A234"></s>


<argument> : A formal list or prose description of the topics addressed by a subdivision of a text. Often contains either a list or a paragraph.

<byline> contains the primary statement of responsibility given for a work on its title page (or at the head or end of the work).

The byline on a title page may include either the name or a description for the document's author.

May occur within: row

May contain: #PCDATA abbr add address anchor bibl biblFull biblStruct cit corr date del emph figure foreign formula gap gi gloss hi label list mentioned name note num ptr q ref reg rs s seg sic soCalled stage table term text time title xptr xref

Attributes: global plus the following:

role : indicates the kind of information held in the cell. Legal values are: The value specified overrides any default specified by the role attribute of the parent <row> element, for this cell only. rows : indicates the number of rows occupied by this cell. Value: A number; a value greater than one indicates that this cell spans several rows. Where several cells span several rows, it may be more convenient to use nested tables. cols : indicates the number of columns occupied by this cell. Value: A number; a value greater than one indicates that this cell spans several columns. Where an initial cell spans an entire row, it should be treated as a heading.

Example:
<row> <cell role="label">General conduct</cell> <cell role="data">Not satisfactory, on account of his great unpunctuality and inattention to duties</cell> </row>
<cit> A quotation from some other document, together with a bibliographic reference to its source. Must contain a single quote and a single bibliographic reference in either order

May contain: bibl biblFull ptr q ref xptr xref

    <corr> contains the correct form of a passage apparently erroneous in the copy text. The corr tag is a mirror of sic: the latter leaves the original text untouched, giving the correction as an attribute value; the former substitutes the correction, leaving the original reading as an attribute value. The choice between them is up to the encoder.

    May contain : #PCDATA abbr add address anchor bibl biblFull cit corr date del emph figure foreign formula gap gi gloss hi l label lang lg list listBibl mentioned name note num orig p ptr q ref reg rs s seg sic soCalled sp stage table term text time title xptr xref unclear

    Attributes: global plus the following:
    Example:
    If all that is desired is to call attention to the fact that the copy text has been corrected, no attributes are required:

    I don't know, Juan. It's so far in the past now — how <corr>can we</corr> prove or disprove anyone's theories?


    Example:

    It is also possible to provide a correct reading and to identify the individual responsible for the correction:
    I don't know, Juan. It's so far in the past now — how <corr sic="we can" resp="MSM">can we</corr> prove or disprove anyone's theories?

    <date> Contains a date in any format. Usually the value is given in the yyyy-mm-dd format.

    <sic> : contains text reproduced although apparently incorrect or inaccurate.
