We are encoding a set of manuscripts and notebooks containing various
poems and prose items. We plan to use the "double encoding" technique
(P4 Section 31.5), so as to represent both physical sources and logical
We are therefore interested in being able to mark up physical
characteristics of our physical sources: page size, materials, etc.
Section 18.4 of P4 sends us off with a wave of the hand to do our own
thing; has anyone else tackled this issue?
In particular, we are interested in being able to indicate the placement
of our logical works on our physical sources, using some sort of
co-ordinate system. Might this be a job for Feature Structures? Or
some other TEI mechanism?
All advice gratefully received ...
