At "Henrik Ibsen's Writings" we have created a new element to record the clarification phenomenon in manuscripts. Ibsen and his copyists some times clarify words or letters either by writing upon the already written word/letters or by repeating the word/letters offline. We encode these instances of repeating the same for the purpose of clarification, like this:

<clarification hand="HI"
place="inline">Henrik</clarification>

<clarification hand="HI"
place="offline">Henrik</clarification>

We believe this is a well known phenomenon for
manuscript transcribers, and we think it would be a
useful addition to chapter 11 "Representation of Primary Sources".

Please contact Ellen Nessheim Wiger (e.n.wiger@ibsen.uio.no) at
Henrik Ibsen's Writings, if you have any questions or
remarks.
