  1. The value for the @xml:id attribute should match the document’s filename. For more information, see docunmentation on document structure. (TLG)
  2. We use the <teiHeader> to encode metadata for documents. For more information, see documentation on encoding a <teiHeader>. (TLG)
  3. Use the <title> element to tag the location’s authority name. (TLG)
  4. For information about how to add content to the <respStmt> tag, see documentation on the encoding responsibility statements. Note that, depending on the location document you are encoding, you may not necessarily include all the responsibilty statements listed in this template. Conversely, you may also include responsibility statements that are not listed in this document. (TLG)
  5. Note that .xml document templates include actual straight apostrophe characters in the @xpointer value field. (TLG)
  6. We use the <catRef> element to classify documents according to the MoEML Document Type Taxonomy. For more information, see documentation on understanding the mdt taxonomy. (TLG)
  7. For information about how to add content to the <revisionDesc> tag, see documentation on the encoding revision descriptions. (TLG)
  8. For information about how to add content to the <facsimile> tag, see documentation on the location document structure. (TLG)
  9. Use the <titlePart> element to tag the location’s authority name again. (TLG)
  10. For information about how to add content to the <div type="placeInfo"> tag, see documentation on location document structure and geocoding locations. (TLG)
  11. For information about how to obtain and encode geo-coordinates, see documentation on geocoding MoEML locations. (TLG)
  12. Use this <div> (and further <div> elements) to encode the main content of a location document (i.e., a stub entry, an encyclopedia article, etc.). (TLG)
