<variantEncoding>

<variantEncoding> declares the method used to encode text-critical variants. [12.1.1 The Apparatus Entry]
Moduletextcrit — Critical Apparatus
Attributesatt.global (@xml:id, @n, @xml:lang, @xml:base, @xml:space) (att.global.rendition (@rend, @style, @rendition)) (att.global.linking (@corresp, @synch, @sameAs, @copyOf, @next, @prev, @exclude, @select)) (att.global.analytic (@ana)) (att.global.facs (@facs)) (att.global.change (@change)) (att.global.responsibility (@cert, @resp)) (att.global.source (@source))
methodindicates which method is used to encode the apparatus of variants.
Status Required
Datatype teidata.enumerated
Legal values are:
location-referenced
apparatus uses line numbers or other canonical reference scheme referenced in a base text.
double-end-point
apparatus indicates the precise locations of the beginning and ending of each lemma relative to a base text.
parallel-segmentation
alternate readings of a passage are given in parallel in the text; no notion of a base text is necessary.
Note

The value ‘parallel-segmentation’ requires in-line encoding of the apparatus.

locationindicates whether the apparatus appears within the running text or external to it.
Status Required
Datatype teidata.enumerated
Schematron

<sch:rule context="tei:variantEncoding">
<sch:assert test="(@location != 'external') or (@method != 'parallel-segmentation')"> The @location value "external" is inconsistent with the
parallel-segmentation method of apparatus markup.</sch:assert>
</sch:rule>
Legal values are:
internal
apparatus appears within the running text.
external
apparatus appears outside the base text.
Note

The value ‘external’ is inconsistent with the parallel-segmentation method of apparatus markup.
