there are (so they say!) many ways to skin cats. including:
* use semantic tags like <l> or <seg>
* use an authoring schema which makes life easier for humans to read XML (o nefas)
* use another markup language, and keep TEI for non-human interchange
* use milestones and anchors
* use transcription surface/zone/line markup
so you have to decide what’s best for a particular project
If we _did_ have the tag for line-end, as in:
<p> and so he said
<sl/>this is the way the world ends<el/>
<sl/>not with a bang but a whimper<el/>
in a quiet voice</p>
I wonder what you think the whitespace between <el/> and <sl/> means?
