Using the basic TEI structural elements

13. Global attributes

Some features (potentially) apply to everything:
  • identity
  • language
  • rendition
TEI provides global attributes for these:
  • @xml:id provides a unique identifier for any element;
  • @n provides a name or number for any element
  • @xml:lang specifies the language of any element, using an ISO standard code
  • @rend and @rendition provide ways of specifying the visual appearance (rendition) of any element
