So, I fear that Lou is the only current Council member who really
understands the issues around hyphenation and that I am the only one who
finds the lack of clear guidance on this question in P5 to be a
significant problem. (Martin Mueller is an ally but is not on Council.)
This has come up a few times over the past few years on TEI-L, with no
changes made to P5 except the addition of a suggested value for @type in
the note attached to the definition of the lb element.
As I mentioned last month, I find "inWord" and "nobreak" (given in the
definition of lb) unclear without examples of each. In addition, as a
reader I would expect to find in section 3.10.3 and/or 3.2 of P5 a
discussion of the three hyphen characters mentioned in 3.2: when to use
each and how they could (or should) be used in combination with the lb,
cb, and pb elements.
Lou, since my summary sent to tei-council last month seemed to proposed
solutions to more problems that we need to solve (or simply raises
additional problems), could you write a proposal that addresses only the
narrow question (which, to be honest, I'm not even sure how to state)?
You might be able to start with your 2010-03-24 message to TEI-L. In
fact, maybe this is still the best solution, but I think we need to make
sure that points raised on TEI-L and at our discussion in Dublin have
been taken into account. Not sure whether you want to send to
tei-council or TEI-L and whether it should go into SourceForge.
I would be be quite grateful!
