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.
