LombardPress Print service

Test you LombardPress valid transcriptions or editions in a print format.

One of the many advantages of encoding transcriptions or editions in a semantic markup language is the separation of presentation and content. This means that the same file can serve different purposes and be used in different contexts. One incarnation may represent the text as a traditional critical edition set up on a print page with one or several critical apparatus, another incarnation may be a interactive web page presenting the text alongside images of a manuscript, and yet another a e-reader friendly version with explanatory notes for students.

But this separation of presentation and content also means that it may be difficult to envision how a finished edition may look like. This app provides an easy interface for converting a XML transcription to a pdf document.

Your XML document must be valid and in compliance with the LombardPress Schema for critical and diplomatic editions.

You can either upload you own documents or fetch a document from the scta database. If you have your own XSLT script for conversion of the XML document, you can upload that. Otherwise the app will use a default Lombard Press transformation script. The script used is based on which version of the LombardPress Schema that the transcription is based on.

If you want to use a local XML file, you can upload it. Otherwise you can provide a SCTA resource id.

The SCTA id is the id of the resource that you want to process. Resource ids can be identified on scta.info. For instance scta.info/resource/deAnima lists all resource ids of De anima commentaries, while scta.info/resource/sententia lists all Sentence commentaries, and from there the resource ids of each the relevant work items.

The uploaded file must be valid XML and in comliance with the LombardPress Schema.

Supply a custom xslt transformation stylesheet or use the default system stylesheets. If the default system stylesheets are chosen, the correct stylesheet will be determined based on the <code>schemaRef</code> in the XML file.

Choose whether you want to get a PDF or TeX file.
