The stage element as defined in tei already has this attribute. Are you are asking why it was removed from teiSimplePrint ? Sent from my Huawei Mobile -------- Original Message -------- Subject: place attribute for stage From: Martin Mueller To: [log in to unmask] CC: Is there a case to be made for giving <stage> a @place attribute? Marginal stage directions are very common in the Jonson folio of 1616, and Iíve run across them in quite a few other plays. One could use @rendition in such place, but it looks a little forced. And stage directions in the margins remind you that a stage direction is a very close relative of <note> and may be the thing itself.
