This chapter discusses the different characteristics of critical edition. It illustrates a global view of the processes and key components of digital critical edition with examples of problems and concrete solutions. The chapter aims to describe how “traditional” components of critical edition—the critical apparatus, the page layout, indexes, and different types of reference systems—can be combined, through digital technology, with tools for analysis and dynamic organization under the reader's control. Through examples of online productions, the chapter shows how the historical modes and conventions are reformulated in a digital environment and how digitally specific modalities can renew critical edition projects.

Keywords:   critical edition, critical apparatus, page layout, indexes, reference systems, digital technology, online productions
