We use the following format for text with enforced line breaks.
<lb n="23"/><s n="1">Minor shades of difference in Mind-healing have origi‐
<lb n="24"/>nated with certain opposing factions, springing up among
<lb n="25"/>unchristian students, who, fusing with a class of aspirants
<lb n="26"/>which snatch at whatever is progressive, call it their first-
<lb n="27"/>fruits, or else <emph ana="italic">post mortem </emph> evidence. </s>
This works well as we can enforce the line-breaks for targets that support that or ignore them for targets, like Epub, that do not.
The problem is dealing with white space, the cr or lf characters at the end of the lines and the spaces before each line if the TEI is indented for easy readability by humans. Also some formats like InDesign use a line ending char or tag to indicate a new line not a line break at the beginning of the line.
I don't see a line ending tag, <le/> , to encapsulate this line-ending concept in the TEI?
How are people handling this situation?
