What the EpiDoc Example Stylesheet can do for your apparatus

2020-10-13

We discuss here what the EpiDoc Example XSLT support as options to render your apparatus, in order to inform your encoding decisions about apparatus notes and features you may want to be recorded in an apparatus at the visualization level.

Your first option is to have all what you actually want in your apparatus encoded explicitly in your <div[@type='apparatus']>, as described in the external apparatus method. The content of this div is always rendered by default by the EpiDoc Example XSLT.

If, however, you wish to have in the apparatus you want to publish also, for example, features of the text which you may have encoded in the text with <choice> or <del> these will not be there unless you tell your processor to show them. EpiDoc Example XSLT can produce a separate, additional apparatus section beside your encoded <div[@type='apparatus']>.

So you can have using the EpiDoc Example XSLT two separate sections, with your annotations inline and in the <div[@type="apparatus"]>.

So, how to encode your apparatus? It is your choice, but the most frequent choice made by projects so far is to use the external apparatus method.
