Overview of keywords and values used in the rendition ladder

The following is a list of the most common renditional keywords and their possible values. These are suggested by the WWP, and are not controlled in either the TEI schemas and DTDs, or in the WWP DTD that accompanies this guide. You may add keywords and values as needed, although it makes sense to use the ones given here if applicable, to avoid redundancy and inconsistency and to make it easier to share information with other projects.
