I am encoding articles from a journal and I can encode the titles of the
articles with the "head" tag.
My question is this. How can to encode the "head" tags in such a way to
allow proper sorting the titles (that is without leading articles like "a"
For example, here is a title that starts with a definite article:
<head>The operas of Puccini</head>
I've tried the following with the "reg" attribute (="regularize")
<head reg="Operas of Puccini">The operas of Puccini</head>
but this is not standard TEI usage of the "reg" attribute and my parser
chokes on it.
Are there other options for me that don't break the rules?
