Vacat Measured in Other Units

Space left on stone (e.g. cm)

A space should be used wherever there is an intentional space left on the support: i.e. a space that never contained text (vacat). A unit attribute should record the units of measurement in whatever form the editor requires (common values include "metre", "cm"), and a quantity attribute should record the number of such units measured.
