TEI guidelines element msDesc

Schema specification

Sometimes we know of manuscripts which have a part which has been moved to another manuscript. In this case we know of a fragment of this manuscript inside another manuscript so we need to use both <msPart> and <msFrag> in <msDesc>. This was discussed in issue 1747 of TEI-C.
