Paragraph <http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/html/PH.html#id2657020> starts with:

"As these examples show, the field of application of the @resp attributes varies from element to element. In some cases, it applies to the content of the element (corr, ex, and supplied); in others it applies to the value of a particular attribute (sic, abbr, del, etc.). "

Hasn't this changed in P5, as the @corr and @expan attributes have been replaced with <corr> and <expan> elements in P5? Besides that, it's unclear to me what attribute of <del> is meant...

    The sentence you quote is just plain wrong. There is no case where @resp gives responsibility for some attribute value. On the other hand, it isn't the content for which responsibility is being given, but the categorisation of that content implied by the particular element, On balance I think it's better just to remove th sentence, pending a rewrite of the whole chapter. Done at revision 6338
