Editorial Practice

Encoding format: SGML TEI Lite

This transcription preserves only the following features of the original printed text:

typeface--the REND attribute is used to specify the font used to render an element where the element's rendition differs from that of its parent, in this text the only values used are RO (roman) and IT (italic), the HI element is used (with no REND attribute specified) to indicate that an element is rendered differently from its parent (i.e., in Roman if its parent is Italic, or in Italic if its parent is Roman), and the markup for italics was automatically generated from the markup of the Project Gutenberg text, and has not been systematically checked against the original;

typesize and lineation--no attempt has been made to preserve lineation in prose, or to record information about type size, except that ornamental capitals, and end-of-line hyphenation in prose have been represented by entity references;

spelling and normalization--the original spelling has been preserved, dropped, missing, or mis-shaped letters have been silently emended, and no attempt has been made to mark use of ligatured or other variant letter forms;

interpretation--names which appear in non-Italic font have been tagged NAME, changes of narrative voice have also been marked using the MILESTONE tag, UNIT=SP with the N attribute taking values "Satan", "the Son", "narr" (narrator), "Michael", "Eve", "Adam", or "God the Father", milestones are also used to record signature information
