Damaged characters

Character or characters damaged on the source document, but not sufficiently ambiguous to require tagging as unclear.

Damaged but legible characters should be enclosed in a <damage> element.

No Leiden equivalent (although some conventions would indiscriminately use underdots for damaged letters even if they are perfectly legible; this is not recommended).

<damage>abc</damage>

Transformation using the example EpiDoc P5 stylesheets:

  • London style: abc
