In my training, I’m operating on the project of a critical edition
electronic of the notebooks of Flaubert's “Bouvard et Pécuchet”.
We are planning to use TEI. We’re now thinking about a method to develop a
close correspondence between text and image, and to cut the sheet in several
The problem is that the corpus is a modern manuscript and so areas or zones
are very irregulars.
We found that TEI only allows rectangles (“att.coordinated”) and we need for
the project to make polygons.
I would be thankful for any information about this case, and if other
digitalization projects have met this problem, how are they dealing with?
