This is the proposed table of contents for the Epidoc Guidelines.
The Introductory Matter provides information pertaining to using the guidelines themselves as well as setting up and managing an encoding project.
The Encoding Guidelines themselves contain descriptions of the elements and attributes that make up Epidoc. They are divided into two sections: elements and attributes used to encode transcriptions of epigraphic and other texts, and the elements and attributes used to encode information abaout the document. Within each major section, elements and their attributes are organized thematically.
In order to make it easier for different disciplinary groups or communities of practice to use the Epidoc Guidelines, this section provides targetted approaches. These provide customized strategies and overall structures, as well as specific mappings to known conventions.
