Dear list,

Has anyone out there written the XSLT necessary to convert TEI <subst> and <choice> structures into human-readable footnotes? It would be great, for example, to take something like this:

t<choice><del>ool</del><add place=“above”>ext</add></choice>s

Then render ‘texts’ in the body, with a footnote reading something to the effect of ‘texts _added above the line_; tools _before correction_’.

All best,
