Base Text and Commentary

This page describes the ATF mechanism for linking a scholarly commentary to its base text.

Commentary Protocol

ATF commentaries do not need a special protocol: four field designations are always available for dividing commentary lines into different parts:

!qt
to introduce a quote from the base text;
!bs
to introduce the base word(s) commented upon;
!cm
to introduce a commentary on the base word(s);
!zz
to mark text as not belonging to a quote, base of comment.

each of these elements must be surrounded by white space: instead of [!cm write !cm [.
