I've got a situation where the manuscript has small graphical
elements that should be recorded as part of the page, but don't meet
the description for <figure>. Examples are flourishes under a poem
or signature, brackets around line groups, a box drawn around finis,
and horizontal rules.
Right now, they are encoded with <figure>, but I think that
overstates the case. These are not tables or block level elements.
Encode them with <seg type="flourish" rend="below"><graphic n="4" /></
seg>, where n is the number of flourishes in that seg. The rend
element would indicate where the flourish is in relation to the line.
How about glyph? <g type="flourish" subtype="..." rend="below" />
Use rend to identify the graphic:
I'm not sure how to handle this consistently -- any suggestions?
