Stefanie— I’m wondering what you think of <supplied> for the purposes of
capturing the conjectural nature of the reading? Setting @resp on
<supplied> can further indicate the source of the interpretation.

I’ll second James here in requesting some context!

Hi Stefanie,

Would you be able to give us a couple of examples to ensure we understand?
You don't need to embed tags like <corr> inside <choice> if you don't want
to. And it may be that just marking a segment of text and categorising it
is more like what you want to do in this case, but I might be
misunderstanding so examples would help.

Best wishes,

Dear all,

maybe someone can help me with the following problem: Is there any
possibilty provided by the TEI Guidelines to mark some text element as
conjectured other than by using the <choice>, resp. <corr> option?

There are, in the manuscripts I am actually working on, some discongruences
between the “graphological” and the orthographic level, in which cases I
would like to abstain from indicating any alternative reading while at the
same time
Indicating that in this place, the reading has, although ‘morally certain’,
some conjectural aspect.

Thanks in advance for your support,

Best regards,

Stefanie Ertz
