Page layout: an overview

May 2010 - G. Buccellati
The home for this page is Mozan sitewide


     In the general website one will find an in-depth presentation of the digital dimension which informs the basic conception of the UGR.
     An explanation of the broader concept of a digital publication in the Global Record section of the Urkesh website, and a discussion of the even wider implications of digital thought in the corresponding digital monograph of the Methodology section of the Urkesh website.
     To be able to "read" a UGR digital book requires a certain familiarity with its structure, although the intent has been to make access to the browser edition as transparent as possible. This section explains in detail the formats used within the UGR page layout, as follows:
  1. The left sidebar (in red) relates to a synthetic presentation of the data, in a traditional vein.
  2. The right sidebar (in black) relates to the analytical presentation in the format of the UGR grammar.
  3. The seecondary sidebaris found occasionally, as an expansion of the left sidebar.
  4. Other formats
  5. The organization of the material is presented here in more detail.
  6. The final section shows how the data are generated in the various portions of the page.

     The individual sections are further subdivided as follows:
  1. The general introduction (where the current Preface is located).
  2. A discursive section on the excavations, using for the most part concepts and language current in the discipline.
  3. Tabulations which correspond as well to standard categories.
  4. A gateway to the Grammar which underlies the treatment of the data given in 4 and 5.
  5. The roster of the constituents in the current book.
  6. The complete list of elements for each of the contituents listed in 5.
  7. Both the left and the right hand side vertical bars (in red and black respectively) open links to the main frame in the center, where the data are displayed.
