About the Image and Note ViewerX

The image and note viewer may be dragged anywhere within the browser window. It is closed by clicking on the X button. Only one image and one popup note can be viewed at a time.

Because of a limitation in the way the browser handles XSLT transformations, users of Firefox and other Mozilla-based browsers cannot view images within untransformed XML documents. In order to view manuscript images in Firefox, it is recommended that readers use HTML versions of the text. This restriction applies only to the image viewer: the note viewer work across all browsers.

About Version ControlsX

Each witness functions independently of each other. The first two witnesses are opened in the VM by default and displayed according to the order established by the editor/encoder. Users can open further witnesses through the Display New Version button. Witnesses can then be displayed in any order via the pull down menu. The X button removes the current version and resizes the remaining versions to maximize available space. All but one version can be removed.

About Note DisplayX

The Display Notes menu provides three choices for viewing notes when viewing texts encoded using the parallel segmentation method, and two when viewing texts encoded as discrete witnesses. In both cases, the default displays notes in a JavaScript popup whenever the reader clicks upon the footnote icons. When viewing parallel segmentation-encoded texts in Internet Explorer and Firefox, there is also the option to display all notes simultaneously within an inline panel. Lastly, there is an option to hide all notes.
