Encoding Description

SARIT: Search and Retrieval of Indic Texts is a library of electronic editions of Indic texts marked up according to the guidelines of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI).

The published edition from which this e-text was transcribed is printed in the Devanāgarī script. The electronic text below is in a lossless transliteration using the Latin alphabet. The transliteration scheme used is the IAST (The International Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration). IAST differs in small ways from ISO 15919, but is preferred by most working Sanskrit scholars. Conversion of this file to ISO 15919 can be achieved by performing the following replacements throughout the file: ṛ -> r̥ and ṃ -> ṁ

Text divison is as Devanāgarī ("ityevam" not "ity evam".)

Initial vowel elision for avagraha is reversed and marked with a + sign: e.g., "prathamo+adhyāyaḥ"

Similarly, external sandhis are undone and marked: "yathā+amarā"

The ampersand (&) was used by the inputters as an anchor to mark places in the e-text where the printed edition has a footnote, and again with the text of the related footnote being placed nearby in the e-text. I have regularized these footnotes in many, but not all, cases, changing them to notes. The use of the ampersand may still be irregular in places, and needs to be checked against the edition, and some notes have been omitted and need to be added from the edition.

The notes by Trivikramātmaja Ācārya are included in the e-text . using the note element.

A first cut has been made at distinguishing verse and prose. Prose passages are enclosed in the normal p tags. Verse passages are grouped within the line-group tag, lg, and individually tagged as verse lines, l.

Inserted comments !-- subdivision -- and !-- /subdivision -- around passages where the text section is subdivided into a level below that of the surrounding text. These comment tags need to be replaced with something better, but we can't use div3, for example, because of the problem of TEI's policy on tessellation. See TEI Guidelines P5, section 4.3.2, et passim. Nor are these subdivisions floating text, or groups, or other obvious units. They could be marked with spans (span type="interesting" spanTo="#xy" ...anchor xml:id="xy") or milestones, but these mechanisms seem clumsy. The question stands for now.
