Encoding 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 "KSV" refers to Varadacharya's edition.
  • Page breaks were encoded as pb-elements. The n-attribute indicates the volume and the page number of Varadacharya's edition.
  • Bracketed references to other works were enclosed in <ref cRef="">.
  • Headings in square brackets were enclosed in <label type="head">
  • Trailers in square brackets were enclosed in <label type="trailer">
  • All other square brackets (1 occurence) were encoded as <hi rend="squarebrackets">.
  • All other brackets (1 occurence) were encoded as <hi rend="brackets">.
  • Double quotes (28 occurrences) were encoded as quote-elements.
  • Single quotes were encoded as q-elements but within label-elements, single quotes were replaced with <hi rend="q1">.
  • Superscript numbers and letters were enclosed in <hi rend="superscript">.
  • Single quotes that have no opening or closing counterpart were enclosed in an unclear-element.
  • Characters that were not readable in the printed edition available to SARIT were enclosed <unclear reason="illegible">.
  • The text is structured as follows:
    • 2 volumes encoded as div type="level1" subtype="volume".
    • 12 chapters encoded as div type="level2" subtype="āhnika"
  • This file consists of three texts encoded as follows:
    • The Nyāyasaurabhaṭippaṇī by K. S. Varadacharya corresponds to the body-element. In volume two, though, this subcommentary appears in the footnotes and is therefore wrapped in note-elements.
    • The Nyāyamañjarī is wrapped in <quote type="commentary1" ana="Nyāyamañjarī">
    • The Nyāyasūtra is wrapped in <quote type="basetext" ana="Nyāyasūtra">

Editorial Description

The print edition has two types of footnotes: notes to the texts (labelled with special symbols such as crosses and asterisks) and notes for the critical apparatus (labelled with arabic numbers). The footnote references to the critical apparatus were encoded as anchor-elements. The critical notes were encoded as app-elements and are located in the back-element of this file. The notes that do not belong to the critical apparatus were encoded as <note> and are located were the footnote reference appears in the print edition. In vol. 2 the Nyāyasaurabhaṭippaṇī by K. S. Varadacharya is shorter and appeared in footnotes. Therefore it was also wrapped in note-elements.

In many cases the symbol (or number) used in the footnote reference does not match the symbol with which the note is labelled. These instances have been corrected.

Some notes have no corresponding footnote reference in the print edition. These notes were either manually relocated or left at the end of the page were they appear. If this is the case of a critical note, the from- and to- attributes of the app-element were left empty.

Footnote references (i.e. superscript numbers) that had no corresponding note were enclosed in <sic>.

A few anchor elements were supplied by the encoder.
