<text type="register">

<text type="register"> is used for registry listings of canons (e.g., "Tituli canonum") within a manuscript. It takes the attribute @xml:id, which should have the format [siglum.folio.reg], and can have <div type="regCanon"> as a child tag.

Canon registers (that is, tables of rubrics or any such analogue to a table of contents) in a manuscript are encoded using the <text type="register"> tag and its children. The register functions as a kind of table of contents for a collection, although not every canon in the main text may be listed in a register, and not every canon noted in the register may appear in the main text. The <text type="register"> markup is to be used for a table of canons even when the manuscript does not contain a collection with full canon text.

<text type="register"> can appear anywhere a <text> can appear. It may occur inside <text type="collection">, within <text type="book"> or within <text type="part"> as long as there is a <group> tag.
