Some transcribers may wish to enter a brief description of significant marks or symbols in the manuscript and their placement with respect to the main text as if they were glosses: i.e., using parentheses ( ) for the description of the mark or symbol, and two @ signs to indicate the region of the text with which they are either physically or conceptually associated. If recording such signs will be unduly onerous, a simple record in the Codicological Questionnaire of their presence would be helpful.
