cert(certainty) signifies the degree of certainty associated with the intervention or interpretation.
Status Optional
Datatype teidata.probCert
resp(responsible party) indicates the agency responsible for the intervention or interpretation, for example an editor or transcriber.
Status Optional
Datatype 1–∞ occurrences of teidata.pointer separated by whitespace

To reduce the ambiguity of a resp pointing directly to a person or organization, we recommend that resp be used to point not to an agent (person or org) but to a respStmt, author, editor or similar element which clarifies the exact role played by the agent. Pointing to multiple respStmts allows the encoder to specify clearly each of the roles played in part of a TEI file (creating, transcribing, encoding, editing, proofing etc.).
