Omschrijving: All text editing begins with a choice: what text to edit. How do we choose the text we edit? Are all texts worth editing, simply because they are texts? Even once we have chosen what we are to edit, further choices lie ahead of us. If a text exists in many versions, and in many documents: are all versions, and all documents, equally worthy of editing? If we choose to focus on a particular version, or a particular document, how do we make this choice, and how do we justify it to others? Once we have made these decisions: choices of method will also be affected by perceptions of value.
