I'm starting to work on http://purl.org/tei/fr/3156049

And I want to add an example of <egXML> in usage. I notice that in TD 
other uses of <egXML> as an example are escaped as CDATA inside <eg> 
which means, I suppose, that we aren't validating the <egXML> (but since 
this allows any XML, what other than well-formness would we validate? It 
strikes me that this is inconsistent though and maybe we should look to 
change it.

The example I was going to provide is:

<egXML xmlns="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/Examples" 
   <head>A slide about <gi>egXML</gi></head>
    <item><gi>egXML</gi> can be used to give XML examples in the TEI 
Examples namespace</item>
    <item>Attributes values for <att>valid</att>:
     <list tei:rend="collapsed">
     <item><val tei:rend="green">true</val>: intended to be fully 
     <item><val tei:rend="amber">feasible</val>: valid if missing nodes 
     <item><val tei:rend="red">false</val>: not intended to be valid</item>
     <item>The <att>rend</att> attribute in the TEI namespace can be 
used for recording how parts of the example was rendered.</item>

To demonstrate the use of @tei:rend inside teiX:egXML to indicate 
rendering of the example in the source (if it had one).

Does this seem reasonable?

I'll also be correcting the valItems for @valid and recommending the use 
of @tei:rend in egXML as above.
