To notate singletons and stubs, please use the following pattern as in Ethio-Spare

Added leaves, where no stub is visible might be recorded as

where the number before the comma is the folio number of the singleton.
Also, you can use with care for consistency the following values
3 replaced, 4 missing, 5 missing, 6 replaced, 9 added
This information will be analyzed to produce diagrams of each quire and formula notations. Added leaves are shown with hyphens, stubs are not shown, replaced leaves are dot-hyphen lines.
Different numerations of quires are encoded as follows:
@nwe encode the progressive number of quires, assigning "a" as value for initial guard leafs and "b" for final guard leafs. This information was given in Roman Numerals in DomLib, but needs to be in arabic numerals here.
The numeration given by the scribe is copied and annotated with a simple

If no information on the condition of the manuscript is available, the element should be simply not added to the record.
<layoutDesc>↗ contains the

Each layout information is given in a

For example for measurement a series of specific purpose attributes and elements can be used:

@columnscontains the number of columns on a page. One column should be encoded as

@writtenLinescontains the number of lines on a page.
<dimensions>↗ contains the
