Templates used

  • don't use {{illegible}} without first checking the alternate scans.
  • For verse numbering, use {{verse}} and not the number. And put directly in front of the word, not with a space. E.g. 2Text-here NOT 2. Text-here
  • If a margin note is referenced with (a), (b), (c), or a star *, use <ref></ref> otherwise use {{MarginNote}}
  • Pay attention to {{hyphenated word start}} and {{hyphenated word end}} this book uses it a lot. ({{hws}} and {{hwe}})
