settings to prevent my reply to Sebastian being rejected, or I'd have
amplified my earlier response the first time round]
As you see, I don't agree that the <facsimile> is the same as the
cemetery. The relationship between a <TEI> which is a single stone and a
<TEI> which contains additional information about (or representations
of) all the stones' contexts seems to me quite similar to the
relationship between a <TEI> which is a single document in a collection,
and a <TEI> which is a document that happens to contain images of all
the documents in said collection. In neither case is it necessarily a
part/whole relationship. There may be data in the <facsimile> about
things other than gravestones, surely?
