All unambiguous end-of-line hyphens have been removed, and the trailing part of a word has been joined to the preceding line. Every effort has been made to preserve the Māori macron using unicode.

Some keywords in the header are a local Electronic Text Centre scheme to aid in establishing analytical groupings.

Yongqing and Shelley reviewed and checked TEI make-up keyboarded by TechBooks. Shelley corrected the capitalisation problem in the header and headings. Yongqiong corrected the problems in poetry and title page’s display. Added some missing images. Deleted unnecessary corresponded tags and related page images. Added some new name keys and modified TEI markup for the display of poems and documents using embedded text elements. Modified the hierarchal structure of divisions by using group of texts.
