Typeface (TextStyle)

The information on the font (type) must be documented in all three element areas (<Word>, <TextLine> and <TextRegion>) with the PAGE XML element <TextStyle>.

Font Family Cluster

With originals from the 16th to 19th century, the typeface cannot always be identified unambiguously. However, the font can be assigned to a particular font family from a cluster of related font groups.

We recommend to use the following font families for the documentation of the @fontFamily:
  • textura
  • rotura
  • bastarda
  • antiqua
  • greek
  • hebrew
  • italic
  • fraktur
<Word>
   <TextStyle fontFamily="fraktur"/>
</Word>
Note:

This specification does not restrict the naming of font families.

Typefaces and Probability of Recognition (Confidence)

By indicating the probability of recognition (confidence) after naming the typeface or font family, several probable typefaces and font families can be named and rated according to their probability.

Typeface, font family and confidence are concatenated with a colon (:) followed by a floating point number between 0 (information is unlikely) and 1 (information is correct or likely).

If the confidence of a typeface or font family is not indicated, the value 1 is to be assumed.

Note:

Naming multiple typefaces and font families within the PAGE XML-element <Word> does not mean that the text was set with multiple fonts or families. It means instead that the text can be assigned to typefaces or font families. The confidence value shows the most likely match.

Naming multiple typefaces and font families within the PAGE XML element PAGE XML-element <TextLine> and <TextRegion> means that the text was set in different fonts or families.
