Morning all!

Linking module

This module seemed pretty well classified already. As far as I can see, applying the procedure which Christian gave, there are no changes required.

I saw a mention in edw87 of the <ab> element being removed - is this still on the cards?


I did find a few things in this module:

// character
element c { att.global.attributes, text } // should include model.gLike?

element c { att.global.attributes, text | model.gLike }

There's a commonality between <m> (morpheme) and <w> (word):

// morpheme
element m
   attribute baseForm { data.word }?,
   ( text | model.gLike | model.blockLike | c | model.global )* // = model.mPart

// word
element w
   attribute lemma { data.word }?,
   ( text | model.gLike | model.blockLike | w | m | c | model.global )* // (model.mPart | w | m)*

I suggest defining m's content model as model.mPart, and w's content would then be:
(model.mPart | w | m)*

Finally, the element <span> has attributes @from and @to (data.pointer type) which might be worth grouping into an attribute class. I thought these might be usable by elements in other modules which attach some metadata to a span of text, though I couldn't find any such elements myself. 

Hope you all have a good weekend!
