We discussed this in our basic manuscript encoding slide set, so you can skip this if you already know it. However, if you need a refresher or did not read our basic manuscript tutorial, feel free to read this now.

If you want to associate your encoding with a facsimile image of the document, you can use the facs attribute to refer to a page image. If you have the rights to the images you are encoding, you may want to do this so you can publish a side-by-side of your encoding and the page image. If you cannot publish the image, you still may want to do this so that you can easily find the pages that your encoded image is marking up.
