More precisely, I'll mostly use it for examples commenting specific
sections or paragraphs. In fact, I have two kinds of examples. Big ones,
I'd like to put in-flow like the DocBook <example> tag; and shorter ones,
I'd like to place as marginalia. But there is no real semantic
differentiation between them... *despaired sigh*
<note type="example" place="margin">Marginalia comment about the p2
<note type="example" place="inline">Long example relating to the p2
and p3 paragraphs</note>

Er... I don't understand this. Could you explain it with more details? How
does this apply to my example?
I think I remember that in the introduction to TEI Lite, it's recommended
to place <note>'s just before the paragraph it comments.
><emph> is to be preferred over <hi>; however, both lack type information.
And I do not want to _emphase_ these character strings, just to mark them
as dice rolls.

Oops, I missed it in the guidelines... Great !

That what I thought.
