Vacat Measured in Lines


Space left on stone

A space should be used wherever there is an intentional space left on the support: i.e. a space that never contained text (vacat). If the space is measured in lines, the unit should have a value of "line".

Panciera 1991 XI.2; Sosin 2011: (vac.3)

<space extent="3unit="line"/>
<space dim="horizontalextent="1"

Transformation using the example EpiDoc P5 stylesheets:

  • London style:      vacat
(InsAph: 1.24)

The attribute dim is not recomended any more as the unit already gives this information.
