#426 title page recto missing from HTML version of Guidelines

Other (7)

The first page of http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/Guidelines.pdf says this:


TEI P5: Guidelines for Electronic Text Encoding and Interange
by the TEI Consortium
Originally edited by C.M. Sperberg-Mceen and Lou Burnard for the ACH-ALLC-ACL Text Encoding Initiative Now entirely revised and expanded under the supervision of the Tenical Council of the TEI Consortium
edited by Lou Burnard and Syd Bauman 2.1.0. Last updated on 17th June 2012.

Two problems here:

a) Those characters that didn't copy and paste correctly are typographical glyphs for purely presentational effect. While they look nice in print, should stop inserting these since they make the PDF less searchable?

b) I can't find anything following "TEI P5: Guidelines for Electronic Text Encoding and Interchange" anywhere in the HTML version of the Guidelines even though these words are in P5/Source/guidelines-en.xml. So these two versions of the Guidelines currently differ in content, not just rendering. Furthermore, since I think we all agree that we want to encourage people to cite the HTML version and not just the PDF version (by page number!), it would be good if we had not only


online but also a


that included this stuff. I'm open to this information instead being included somewhere at http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/html/index-toc.html , but I'm not sure where else to put it. In any case, we need to figure out why this information is being thrown out.

    Sorry, I am leaving Title as Title, and not numbering it. faking up the numbering is a nightmare, and I dont have the phrase Title Page available. Of course, anyone else can dive in and try.

    The version number was an interesting problem, thanks :-} Now solved.
