I'm sure this has been covered before, so I thank you for your patience.
What exactly is the problem with the persName element in the TEI names/
dates tag set? I've seen reference made to a 'bug' as well as line
I assume is intended to correct said bug.
As far as I can tell, persName *should* be available in any <P>-level
section of text, but a glitch somewhere forbids this (at least *I*
have been unable to use it--or orgName either). What do I need to fix,
and how does the fix work?
I posted about our use of persName among other things in July. I just
looked it up: it's message 1254, so you can get it using LISTDB: send
a mail message to [log in to unmask] saying
// Job Echo=No
Database Search DD=Rules
//Rules DD *
search persname and flynn in tei-l since 1 jun 1995
and it will send you the message. DON'T include anything else in the
message text you send, especially NOT a .sig file.
