Editorial restoration: Characters lost but restored by modern editor

a

Where text not present in the source is supplied (whether conjecturally or from other witnesses) to fill an apparent gap in the text, supplied may be used. supplied signifies text supplied by the transcriber or editor for any reason, typically because the original cannot be read because of physical damage or loss to the original.

reason indicates why the text has had to be supplied.

supplied indicates text lost from the original support, restored by the editor either by comparison with other texts or through other contextual knowledge.

Note: If a span of restored text is broken by other intervening structural markup (e.g. word and name tags, or even if these are not used, abbreviations and numbers), the text may be divided between two or more supplied elements, and the rendering XSLT will correctly omit redundant square brackets between these spans.
