Hello:

I'm encoding community histories and many of the texts have individual's names listed and I'm looking for some advice.


The original looks like this ...


Mrs. Scott Jardine, Vice-President


Scott is her husband's name. Can I create a type for forename (eg. type="husbandname")?


I've encoded it like this

<persName>

<addName type="honorific">Mrs.</addName>

<forename type="husbandname">Scott</forename>

<surname>Jardine</surname></persName>,

<roleName>Vice-President</roleName>

</persName>


Thanks,

Donald
