In my TEI XSL for HTML, I solve this as follows:
When I meet an <l>, I generate:
<div class="numbering>6</div> <!-- ie, the number, or a fixed space if its an unnumbered line -->
The text of the line of potry
and define "numbering" in my CSS with
which has floats the box with the number off to the side.
Does that make sense? the key, obviously, is always to generate the <div> with the
number, even if its empty.
