As I understand the layout, it doesn't look that much different from 
standard displays you see from print things on the web as well. So it 
looks like basic strikeout and square brackets would work.

Stuart, how did this approach lead to poorly formed XHTML? There's 
nothing inherent about the TEI that should, surely? In a P4 SGML 
document I used a syntax that anticipated choice in this context to a 
certain extent and even with the rudimentary pre XSLT tools available to 
me at the time had no trouble getting valid XHTML out of it. Or is just 
a bug still needing to be squashed in your sheets?
