Hi Frédéric,

Just FYI: The Livingstone rules aren't mine. I don't have anything to do with the project.

In fact, I don't yet know if I like some of the Livinsgstone rules. They create challenges for users of TEI files, such as myself.

Your encoding rules are very interesting.

About milestones for "couillards", I'm not agree. My understanding of
milestones is the covering of the text with a sectioning scheme
incompatible with the logical tree, like pages <pb/>, or thematic
analysis. "couillards" are always compatible with the paragraphs flow,
and the sections.
For what seems to be this very purpose, The David Livingstone Spectral
Imaging Project uses
   <milestone unit="section" rend="line" />
   <milestone unit="section" rend="2-lines" />
   <milestone unit="section" rend="3-lines" />

Had Livingstone been French, the project might be using
   <milestone unit="section" rend="astérisme" />
