Dear TEI people,
I continue my delvings into the darker bits of the guidelines. So here
goes with a few more attempts to earn a dollar (warning to Michael: I will
be in Chicago on March 24 to 26th so might collect all my dollars then)
1. <series>: the documentation says this 'may contain character data and
phrase-level elements.'. No it can't. The declaration says that it may
hold only title | editor | respStmt | biblScope. Try and put any PCDATA
in and the parser tells you that you are a naughty boy or girl.
2. <list>: the documentation says that a list must have more than one item,
and indeed so it is implemented. In fact, there are actually times when
you want a list to have only one item in it! For example: we are encoding
a glossary as a series of list elements, with each list containing all the
items for one letter. But one letter only has one item in it. It would
seem odd to have this one letter alone not appear as a list. I don't have
any problem with a list with only one item (I often have shopping lists
with only one thing on them.) What about it?
3. <list> in <div>: I want to put a <list> direct in a div after , thus:
<head>title for this list</head>
<list> the list...
TEI won't let me do that: seems I have to have:
<head>title for this list </head>
this seems somewhat restrictive to me.
