Identifiers Structure


Each <msPart>, <msItem> and <msFrag> should have an @xml:id with a letter (respectively p, i or f) and a progressive number. For nested <msPart>s numeration should restart and use a full stop for the second level.

<msDesc xml:id="ms"> <msIdentifier> <repository ref="INS0030Addaqaharsi"></repository> <idno>MR-023</idno> </msIdentifier> <msPart xml:id="p1"> <msIdentifier> <idno></idno> </msIdentifier> <msContents></msContents> <msPart xml:id="p1.1"> <msIdentifier> <idno></idno> </msIdentifier> <msContents></msContents> </msPart> <msPart xml:id="p1.2"> <msIdentifier> <idno></idno> </msIdentifier> <msContents></msContents> </msPart> <msPart xml:id="p1.3"> <msIdentifier> <idno></idno> </msIdentifier> <msContents></msContents> </msPart> </msPart> <msPart xml:id="p2"> <msIdentifier> <idno></idno> </msIdentifier> </msPart> </msDesc>

<msItem>s will have an ID formed of the <msPart> or <msFrag>, underscore and the item ID, like p1.1_i1

<msPart xml:id="p1.1"> <msIdentifier> <idno> </idno> </msIdentifier> <msContents> <msItem xml:id="p1.1_i1"> <locus></locus> <title></title> <msItem xml:id="p1.1_i1.1"> <locus></locus> <title></title> </msItem> <msItem xml:id="p1.1_i1.2"> <locus></locus> <title></title> </msItem> </msItem> <msItem xml:id="p1.1_i2"> <locus></locus> <title></title> </msItem> </msContents> </msPart>
