Conventions used in the browsable texts

Only ISO Latin-1 characters and additional characters from ISO 8859-1 are available in some browsers, e.g. Netscape. The full SGML character set used in CURIA documents cannot be displayed. Readers whose needs extend beyond these representations are advised to consult the full SGML/TEI text files.

Not all browsers are capable of skipping values in numbered lists therefore we cannot reliably use hanging numeration (until such time as the software is improved).

Readers whose textual requirements extend beyond what may be realized in HTML should consult the fully marked-up SGML versions.

This list of conventions is subject to revision.

Ā ā Ē ē Ī ī Ō ō Ū ū are rendered Á, á, É, é, Í, í, Ó, ó, Ú, ú,
