I am encoding Latin XI century manuscripts. I have situations in which a
second hand corrects the text (possibly in the margin of the text)
without deleting the original word. Example:
reusis<add hand="#unknownhand" place="margin" type="correction"
I'd like to mark up that the two words are alternative to each other --
in other words, I'd like to mark that this is a substitution (<subst>).
But there is no deletion (<del>). This has been discussed in another
TEI-L thread in 2014:
(I found that thread through Paragraph "Transformation of letters
without deletion" in
The 2014 TEI-L discussion seemed to suggest something like:
<add hand="#unknownhand" place="margin" type="correction">
Has this issue been discussed within the TEI in the meanwhile? Or would
you still suggest to use @type on <del>?
One specific issue: I'd rather use @rend than @type with <del>, since in
oter, simpler cases, I did:
<del hand="#unknownhand" rend="strikethrough">
<add hand="#unknownhand" place="above" type="correction">
