Inline apparatus criticus

The tags that may be used within the transcribed text division itself, and from which an apparatus criticus can be generated in post-processing.

Features that might need to be generated to produce a standard epigraphic or papyrological apparatus criticus include: variant readings and restorations from previous editors; corrections of erroneous or non-standard spellings or grammar in the text; observations about highlighted or other unusual characters, deletion marks and other symbols.

The only core EpiDoc project that uses inline tagging to generate apparatus criticus and has contributed the XSLT to the EpiDoc Example Stylesheets is the DDbDP. The code for generating the apparatus text is therefore idiosyncratic and would likely require customization and rewriting for most other projects.
