Editorial restoration: Word incompletely restored

supplied indicates text lost from the original support, restored by the editor either by comparison with other texts or through other contextual knowledge. Where a word cannot be completely restored, the missing part should be indicated by a gap. A <w> element shold be used with a part attribute that explains which part of the word is missing:

: abc[..?..]

<w part="I">
 <supplied reason="lost">abc</supplied>
</w>
<gap reason="lost"/>
()
Note: Note that adjacent supplied and gap elements will not result in redundant square brackets within a single lacune in the Example EpiDoc XSLT (see Segmented or adjacent lacunae).
<w part="I">
 <supplied reason="lost">sta</supplied>
</w>
<gap reason="lost"/>
