  • the first and last record of each chapter
  • the longest record (considering the number of attributes such as inclusions, exclusions, notes etc.)
  • all 6 records with two-column inclusion notes
  • at least one record with each of the following features:
    • notes with continuation (CNotes)
    • inclusion notes with one column
    • exclusion notes with one column
    • a star (*) mark on the cr_ast column
    • a cross (†) mark on the cr_ast column
    • chapter reference within a note
    • a code reference suffixed with a cross (†)
  • all records referenced from the records selected above
