<div type="regCanon">

<text type="register"> will contain one or more <div type="regCanon"> tags, which contain the individual canons listed in the register.

<div type="regCanon"> has one required attribute and one optional attribute.

@xml:id: (required) This attribute provides a unique identifier for this canon register entry within the entire CCL corpus. The xml:id is built by combining the manuscript's siglum with the number of the folio in the manuscript, and the physical location of the canon entry in that register (so that the fourth entry on the page would be: siglum.folio number.4). These three elements are separated by periods. In this example, the canon, numbered 22 in the register, is the ninth canon listing on fol. 44v in manuscript D (please see the description of the xml:id for full canons for an analogy):

  • <div type="regCanon" xml:id="D.44v.9"></div>

@n: (optional) This attribute notes the number of the canon within its context, whether that context is a collection, book, or part.
