    [crossposted to Humanist and Mediev-L]

    I am a serious amateur embarking on a perhaps hazardous voyage:
    transcribing and preparing an online edition of a popular English
    Renaissance text. I would like suggestions on the current British-standard
    guidebook(s) on documentary editing, especially any oriented toward English
    literature and/or history.

    Not to further bore everyone generally, but I'll provide details on request.

    Thanks in advance,

    Francois Lachance's posting on reading, browsing, reading a snippet, etc.,
    makes me ask a very simple, somewhat unrelated question: for anyone using a
    Mac out there, is there a good program for "clipping" passages, making
    notes, etc. and storing them in an easily searchable, etc. database of some
    sort. Products come and go (mostly go, it seems). PC users seem to have more.

    Thanks--on a very mundane question. Reply privately if you
