    Sometimes, but not always, the text has a Comment which identifies the unknown words, since there is no easy way of identifying the word in question; amongst other reasons, Trove does not report line numbers, upon which the unknown word is located.

    For consistency, and to group all the unknown word tags to gether, "Txxt Latin" may be rewritten as

    Should the unknown word or phrase be identified, that editor should create a suitable comment on that article.
