The WWP records the renditional distinction of forme work components using the rend= attribute on <mw>. Catchwords are the only type of forme work which is likely to contain any renditional information. If only part of the catchword is renditionally distinct, we will use <hi> as necessary to indicate the renditional shifts within it. We do not do any content-based encoding within catchwords (e.g. <persName>, etc.). We do not encode delimiters using the catchword’s rend= attribute; quotation marks, brackets, etc. should be encoded as #PCDATA since they do not function as delimiters in any meaningful sense within the catchword.
Note that where an <mw> element occurs within a renditionally distinct element, the rendition of the <mw> (if different) will need to be specified. For example:
<lb/>If there were fewer words in this sentence in this
<lb/>non-italicized page, then this could be the
<milestone type="sig" n="Uu2v">
<mw type="pageNum" rend="slant(upright)">3270</mw>
ultimate</term> word on the page. But it’s not.
The <term> element here is italicized, and hence the rend= of <mw> needs to indicate that its content is not italicized.
