All definitions begin with the line

digraph "Stemma Name" {
and end with the line
Please do not change these lines except to edit the stemma name.

First list each witness in your stemma, whether extant or lost / reconstructed / hypothetical, and assign them a class of either "extant" or "hypothetical". For example:

  	α [ class=hypothetical ]
  	C [ class=extant ]

Next, list the direct links between witnesses, one per line. For example, if witness C descends directly from witness α, note it as follows:

  	α -> C

A witness may be the exemplar for any number of other witnesses, whether extant or not; likewise, a witness may inherit from any number of other witnesses. Use as may "A -> B" pairings as necessary to describe the links.
