Dear list,

for a project dealing with a digital edition of a french 
fifteenth-century treatise on obsequies, we need (as starters in this 
issue) some help regarding three questions:

1. As far as we know, the element <foliation> works with prose. Is there 
any preferred option to articulate in a machine processing way (e.g. 
with attributes) the foliation/pagination and the full number of 
folio/pages of a volume?

2. We would like to set links to digitised manuscripts and catalogue 
descriptions in the <msDesc>, as part of the header. The combination 
<locus facs=“http....“/> seems to relate only to a specific page of a 
digitised manuscript. How do we express a linking to a full digitised 
manuscript or an online catalogue description in a most convenient and 
common way?

3. As part of the header and introduction of the edition, we would like 
to list the elements used with a short explanation as part of the 
<encodingDesc>, in order to keep the work transparent for users. There 
is no suggestion in the TEI Guidelines. Is it completely uncommon or is 
there already an established way doing this? We tried a structure 
containing <p>, <list>, <item> and <!CDATA[<*element>]]>.

We would be pleased and thankful if you had an advice for one or even 
all questions!
