Think I've got it. So, would the following be correct? Also, should the value of the <preferredForm> be controlled?
Hi Anne Marie,The reason why you van't find documentation on this is that <perferredForm> only refers to a nameEntry within nameEntryParallel whereas authorizedForm refers either to a nameEntryParallel as a whole or a nameEntry that is not a part of a nameEntryParallel. Hope that makes sense?Best, KathyKathy wisser.

Have read through the literature and failed to find documentation or an example for the following: Can you encode the same <nameEntry> as both the <preferredform> and the <authorizedForm>, or must you repeat the same <nameEntry> to provide this declaration? Also can anyone provide a suggestion for the transliteration attribute value? See second <nameEntry> in example below.<nameEntryParallel><nameEntry xml:lang="eng" scriptCode="Latn"><part>Der Nersessian, Sirarpie</part><preferredForm>ICFA</preferredForm><authorizedForm>Library of Congress Name Authority File</authorizedForm></nameEntry><nameEntry xml:lang="arm" scriptCode="Latn" transliteration="?"><part>Ter-Nersesian, Sirarp'i Veronik'</part><authorizedForm>National Library of the Netherlands</authorizedForm></nameEntry></nameEntryParallel>Thanks for the help!
