CELT: Corpus of Electronic Texts

Editorial Declaration


Text proofread twice.


The electronic texts represents the edited text. Editorial notes are included and marked note type="auth"; in the electronic edition, they appear at the end of each entry. Text supplied by the editor is marked sup resp="PB". Passages of verse occurring within paragraphs are treated as embedded texts; stanzas are marked lg and metrical lines are marked l. As the electronic edition places all entries in their chronological order, where cross-references appear in the printed edition, they are annotated using sup resp="BF" in the file. For two annal entries no year is given; these have been marked MG n="?".


There are no quotations.


CELT practice.


div0=the body of annals; div1=the annal. This electronic edition places all entries in their chronological order. Therefore page-breaks of the printed edition are not marked.


Names of persons, roles, places and organisations are not tagged. Titles of books, journals and manuscripts (in the notes) are tagged.

Canonical References

This text uses the DIV1 element to represent the Annal.
