Encoding Description

Editorial Description

  • Line breaks: In the source file, there were two types of line breaks: returns (and possible surrounding space) and hyphens+returns. These were replaced with lb-elements. The ed-attribute "nya" refers to Nyāyācārya's edition.
  • Double quotes were replaced with quote-elements.
  • Single quotes were replaced with q-elements.
  • Square brackets were replaced with hi rend="squarebrackets".
  • Round brackets were replaced with hi rend="brackets".
  • Bold characters were enclosed in hi rend="bold".
  • Suspension points (…) were enclosed in supplied reason="gap".
  • The footnotes were encoded as note-elements with their corresponding n-attribute. The footnote 19-3 has no corresponding footnote reference. It was left at the end of the page and was given the attribute place="bottom"

Nyāyācārya's edition has a list of corrections on the last page. These corrections have been encoded with the tags choice,sic, and corr. Page and line numbers of each correction are given in the n-attribute. Thus, choice n="25.20" refers to the correction on page 25, line 20.

In three cases the corrections introduced by SARIT differ from those listed in Nyāyācārya's edition (a @resp has been added to the corresponding corr-elements):

  • 12.21 and 13.16: The final -म् (in -उपमानम्) was not changed to -स्.
  • 17.10: उपमान॰ was corrected to: इत्युपमान॰ and not, as in the list of corrections, to इति पमान॰.
  • 3.7: The mistake had already been corrected in the edition. So it was not necessary to make any changes.
