Handling primary sources in TEI XML

10. Encoding abbreviations (3)

The @type attribute on <abbr> allows us to provide alternative renderings for the same markup in different contexts.
<choice><abbrtype="susp">k<am>&amp;#x307;</am></abbr><expan>k<ex>onungr</ex></expan> </choice> <choice><abbrtype="tittel">ml<am>&amp;#x305;</am>i</abbr><expan>m<ex>śl</ex>l<ex>t</ex>i</expan> </choice>
k(onungr) mśllti

As elsewhere, the @resp and @cert attributes can also be used to indicate who is responsible for an expansion, and the degree of certainty attached to it.
