Text encoding - referential

Refers to the addition of character and symbols, or tags, at certain places in a text in order to convey information about external elements. These can include hypermedia, or hyperlinks that take the user further down the page, to other pages of the text (internal links), or to related documents (external links).

In XHTML, this is achieved by using the anchor <a href="...">...</a> element to link to the desired URL. XLink is used to create hyperlinks in XML documents. Hyperlinks can also be added when using software such as spreadsheets and WYSIWYG word processors.

Links can be unidirectional, where they simply link to the URL, or bidirectional, where the user can link back to the original URL.

tool: CHET-C (Chapel Hill Electronic Text-Converter)

Software tool designed to convert digital texts that employ standard typographic editorial conventions into EpiDoc-compliant XML files. A series of regular expressions are applied to the source document and the results are placed into a “shell file” (i.e., a template), which can be customised in advance. The regular expressions are stored in a separate configuration file to permit customisation, but this file is generated from regular expressions embedded in the EpiDoc Guidelines source files. This arrangement permits robust automated and user-driven self-tests within the EpiDoc webapp and facilitates a high degree of coordination across EpiDoc tools. Prior versions exist (MSAccess + VBA and Java, both now deprecated), but more recent development has focused on a JavaScript version that will run without plugins in a modern web browser.

tool: SoSOL (Son of SOL)

Tool under construction at the University of Kentucky as part of the IDP second phase. It is an editing tool which aims to make the task of creating EpiDoc-conformant XML editions of epigraphic and papyrological texts manageable to users without needing to edit the raw XML. As such it will include conversions tools such as CHET-C, as well as a tags-free editing environment and template handler.

tool: The Transcoder

Java class that maps font encodings to one another and allows encoding shifts such as Beta Code to Unicode and the reverse. It was written to support shifting between different encodings for Ancient Greek, but is extensible to support any character set. Supported encodings include Beta Code, Unicode with pre-composed characters, Unicode with combining characters, GreekKeys, SPIonic, and transliterated Greek.
