We are looking for an answer to the former question – for examples or models actually.

We are displaying transcripts on the web and want to see if there is a standard or generally accepted way to display the corrections.

Any examples appreciated.

Many thanks!

Hi Courtney,

I'm not sure you ever got an answer to this. Did you?

An immediate question for me involves what you are looking for: do you
mean "how could one display corr and sic in the case of transcriptions
of speech?" or do you mean "How could I get corr and sic to display the
way they typically appear in transcriptions?" And another question: are
you think of display in a website? Or in print?

In principle you can format them any way your medium will accept. I
don't know off the top of my head how corrections are typically
displayed in transcriptions. But if you have a model, it would not be
hard to get them to look like your model, I suspect.
