Character Level (Diplomatic) Papyrus Encoding. Version 0.1 (01/02/2001): Proposal

There are a series of levels of annotation involved in the encoding of papyrus documents, from character level details through to editorial decisions regarding variant interpretations and readings. These different levels are associated with different text editions, diplomatic (character or base level), reconstructed (word divisions, accents and expansions) and reading (variant readings and interpretations). This document outlines the base diplomatic level for this annotation, which takes place at the character level. It also describes the XML elements and attributes used for this annotation.
