Representing the appearance of the original document: overview

rendition renditional default alignment capital letters, distinctive case brace forme work leader column running header/footer

Encoding the appearance of the source document is deceptively simple: the TEI provides a single attribute, the rend attribute, with which to represent all renditional information. For projects that wish to encode that information in detail, however, there are a number of issues that require careful consideration to ensure consistency and expressiveness in the encoding. For more information see the entries listed below.
