[osis-core] <hi> types

Can you explain what you mean by 'illuminated letters'? (I have a
mental image of electronically back lit letters, which I suspect is not
what you mean.)
Can you scan an example?
It would seem that we should encode some non-presentation related
semantics. 'Emphasis' with a variety of types (like 'strong', 'weak',
etc...) might be appropriate.
Aren't drop caps are usually a purely presentation related thing and
don't need to be encoded.
