> how would one encode acrostics in verse lines?
The WWP developed a methodology for this, which is briefly described
on the TEI website at
(No, to my knowledge there is no way to access that page from the TEI
front page -- might be, but I don't know it.)
This method makes use of an <acrostics> element; the problem for many
problems will be where to put such an element. There is currently a
feature request in Sourceforge for P5 for the creation of a place for
such things, which is (I belieeve) submitted by the WWP and assigned
to me. I'm optamitically hopeful that later this summer I will
actually get to address this latter issue.
