Thanks for the link, Kevin. The HTML document contains also a link to a
"TEI-compliant" version, which (on a cursory glance) has some rather
dubious tagging in it, ironically enough.

The only problem with this approach is that you are creating for
yourself the headache of converting between whatever structure your
"fielded data" expects and the TEI structure. So maintaining/updating
the data in TEI XML gets complicated.
Why not use a proper XML template in the first place?

Tell us about your "even less elegant" system -- you're among friends!
