Article

Abstract

The TEI Guidelines provide little detail on how to encode a text within the physical structures of the book in which it is contained. This paper describes the physical structures of an early printed book and presents two methods for encoding a text within that structure through use of the TEI elements <DIV> and <JOIN>.
