Erased and Illegible / Restored

Characters which have been erased in antiquity and are illegible, or restored by the modern editor, should be tagged using the <del> element, whose rend should have a value of "erasure". The text supplied by the editor should be placed within a supplied element inside the <del> element. Where the characters cannot be understood or are unclear, <orig> and unclear elements should be used respectively.
