  3. Additions:


To indicate that our reference edition restores a text or letter omitted by the textual tradition we use angle brackets: "in my text that word".

The <supplied> tag records these additions to the transmitted text. It has the following syntax:

<supplied source="#editorquesea">texto que el editor añade</supplied>

The @source attribute is optional, but it is useful to specify it if our edition is based on more than one reference edition.

If the <supplied> tag bypasses the nesting hierarchy (within a number of verses, for example), use the system described in Syntax of the Diacritical Marks, with the attribute @unit="supplied" for the tag <milestone/>.

How can we help?
