Binding Description

The binding of the manuscript can be described in a <bindingDesc> element containing a <binding> and a series of <decoNote>s

            <binding contemporary="false" xml:id="binding">
                <decoNote xml:id="b1">Wooden boards (recently) covered with
                    reddish-brown tooled leather. </decoNote>
                <decoNote xml:id="b2">Four pairs of sewing stations.</decoNote>
                <decoNote xml:id="b3" type="bindingMaterial"><material key="wood"></material></decoNote>
                <decoNote xml:id="b4" type="Endbands">...</decoNote>
                <decoNote xml:id="b5" type="Other">
                    Parchment guards (possibly of the same
                    origin as <locus target="#183"></locus>) were used to sew together <locus from="1" to="2"></locus>.

Example 1

<binding> can take @notBefore and @notAfter and takes a @contemporary to provide general information.

<decoNote> elements in <binding> Description MUST have a @xml:id starting with the letter 'b' followed by a progressive number, e.g. b1, b2, b3.

Some of these decoNote can take a special form (which was established to host the data coming out of EthioSpaRE).

  • The first decoNote, with @xml:id='b1' should be a general note and remain untyped.

  • Inside the special <decoNote type="bindingMaterial"> you can add the element <material> with a @key equal to one of the values of the corresponding taxonomy from the schema. oXygen should prompt the values from the schema.

You can always further specify this information within one of the <decoNote> elements within <binding>.
