Editorial Practice

Encoding format: SGML TEI

This transcription preserves only the following features of the original printed text:

typeface--the REND attribute is used to specify the font used to render an element where the element's rendition differs from that of its parent, in this text the only values used are RO (roman) and IT (italic), the HI element is used (with no REND attribute specified) to indicate that an element is rendered differently from its parent (i.e., in Roman if its parent is Italic, or in Italic if its parent is Roman), and the markup for italics was automatically generated from the markup of the Project Gutenberg text, and has not been systematically checked against the original;

typesize and lineation--no attempt has been made to preserve lineation in prose, or to record information about type size;

spelling and normalization--the original spelling has been preserved, dropped, missing, or mis-shaped letters have been silently emended, and no attempt has been made to mark use of ligatured or other variant letter forms
