Status Optional
Datatype
Sample values include:
leaves
dimensions relate to one or more leaves (e.g. a single leaf, a gathering, or a separately bound part)
ruled
dimensions relate to the area of a leaf which has been ruled in preparation for writing.
pricked
dimensions relate to the area of a leaf which has been pricked out in preparation for ruling (used where this differs significantly from the ruled area, or where the ruling is not measurable).
written
dimensions relate to the area of a leaf which has been written, with the height measured from the top of the minims on the top line of writing, to the bottom of the minims on the bottom line of writing.
miniatures
dimensions relate to the miniatures within the manuscript
binding
dimensions relate to the binding in which the codex or manuscript is contained
box
dimensions relate to the box or other container in which the manuscript is stored.

Schematron

<s:report test="count(tei:width)> 1">The element <s:name/> may appear once only
</s:report>
<s:report test="count(tei:height)> 1">The element <s:name/> may appear once only
</s:report>
<s:report test="count(tei:depth)> 1">The element <s:name/> may appear once only
</s:report>
Example
<dimensions type="leaves">
 <height scope="range">157-160</height>
 <width>105</width>
</dimensions>
<dimensions type="ruled">
 <height scope="most">90</height>
 <width scope="most">48</width>
</dimensions>
<dimensions unit="in">
 <height>12</height>
 <width>10</width>
</dimensions>
Example

This element may be used to record the dimensions of any text-bearing object, not necessarily a codex. For example:

<dimensions type="panels">
 <height scope="all">7004</height>
 <width scope="all">1803</width>
 <dim type="reliefunit="mm">345</dim>
</dimensions>

This might be used to show that the inscribed panels on some (imaginary) monument are all the same size (7004 by 1803 cm) and stand out from the rest of the monument by 345 mm.

Example

When simple numeric quantities are involved, they may be expressed on the quantity attribute of any or all of the child elements, as in the following example:

<dimensions type="leaves">
 <height scope="range">157-160</height>
 <width quantity="105"/>
</dimensions>
<dimensions type="ruled">
 <height unit="cmscope="most"
  quantity="90"/>

 <width unit="cmscope="mostquantity="48"/>
</dimensions>
<dimensions unit="in">
 <height quantity="12"/>
 <width quantity="10"/>
</dimensions>
Note

Contains no more than one of each of the specialized elements used to express a three-dimensional object's height, width, and depth, combined with any number of other kinds of dimensional specification.
