Handling primary sources in TEI XML

13. Corrections and emendations

The <sic> element can be used to indicate that the reading of the manuscript is erroneous or nonsensical, while <corr> (correction) can be used to provide what in the editor's opinion is the correct reading:
<sic>giorit</sic>
<corr>giorir</corr>
Alternatively, they may be combined within a <choice> element, thus allowing the possibility of providing multiple corrections:
<choice>  <sic>giorit</sic>  <corr cert="high">giorir</corr>  <corr cert="low">gioret</corr> </choice>
