If you can point us at images of a few sample pages, it might be easier
to make suggestions, but in general:
Prose text is most commonly encoded using divisions (<div>) and
paragraphs (<p>), with linebreaks encoded as milestones (<lb/>). See
Verse would be encoded using line-groups (<lg>) and lines (<l>), where
the lines are container elements, not milestones:
Other types of text such as log entries might be encoded as lists
(<list> and <item>).
Hope this helps,
