Hello,For each of my MEI transcriptions I have a short .rtf document that contains the critical commentary for the transcription. A sample of the text is pasted below. This is information I would like to be able to display on my website along with my transcriptions. I think the best place for most of this would be in the MEI header - I can see using sourceDesc and respStmnt for some of it, for example, but I'm unsure where I could put the information on variants. Eventually, I plan on including the variant information within the encoding itself using the critical apparatus tags, but for right now I just want to make sure that this information travels with the transcription.Would appreciate feedback as to the best place for this information.Best,Karen Desmond
