On reviewing the reference numbers for DN and MN, I find there are a few problems, and have made some changes.
- In DN, the section numbers have been incorrectly marked
"wp"i.e. “Wisdom Publications edition”. In fact the section numbers derive ultimately from the Pali edition of the PTS, and should be marked
"pts-cs", i.e. PTS chapter and section. This class is already implemented in our lists of editions at
paragraph-num.scss. These sections have subsequently been adopted by multiple editions, including the Wisdom one. I have made these changes to the PO file.
- I think we should also change the label for the
"wp"numbering in MN. While this section numbering is best known from the Wisdom edition by Ven Bodhi, in fact it was introduced by Ven Nyanamoli, as I can confirm from the scanned images of his translation. This system would have been, I think, first published in Khantipalo’s A Treasury of the Buddha’s Words. So I think it would be best to call it the “Nyanamoli” numbering,
class="nya". This class will have to be added to Next.
- Throughout, the PTS vol/page numbers have been marked inadequately as
"pts". We should use the more specific
"pts-pi-vp", i.e. PTS Pali vol/page. Again, this class is already implemented. I have made the changes to the PO file. This change might affect the text-image displayer.
- Certain of the suttas in MN miss a few
wpnumbers. I have fixed some, but there may be more. We should do some integrity testing for these, ensure they are all sequential, for example.
- A number of suttas in DN lack these numbers altogether: dn1, dn2, dn20, dn31, dn32. I will add them myself to the PO file.
Note that these numbers will be used as the basis for the canonical segment numbers, and we should take care to make sure they’re correct.
The corrected versions will be used for Next, there is no need to change the old HTML files.
