- I seem to be getting my lowercase vs and fs confused, and I'm also unsure about what appears to be a capital G (which I think is likely a capital V or F).
- I need to go back and figure out the TEI coding for these marginal words and images.


Update: I'm having trouble using the ⁊ sign in the transcription area; and so I'll use a 7 as a temporary replacement.

What I did was that first I finished the whole text and then I migrated it to a Word doc (or Google doc) and did a universal replace. Then I patched it back in.

I think deletions, like the deleted line, are just marked . There's a button at the top that will do it for you.


If the Tironian note is showing up as a rectangle in the transcription window, I believe that is only because of the font and/or the From the Page framework. It will still function correctly even if it looks that way.
