ok, I know replying to myself is a little wierd, but after further
I understand the POSSIBILITY that there may be an excerpt with a start
or end quote. We probably should allow it. If someone wanted the last
10 verses of Jesus' Sermon On The Mount, I'd expect it to end with a </q>
BUT I still don't think we should allow a milestone without it's
start/end counterpart. That's like saying we'd allow </q> without the <q>.
I think we need to be hard and fast about the rule I stated earlier.
So, thinking further.....
If I wanted to encode an excerpt that started in the middle of a quote
and contained the end of the quote.....
How would I encode it????
Let's not even think milestones here. MILESTONES should not ADD
functionality... Like providing the ability to solve this problem....
Would something like this be valid:
dunno the best way to solve it, but it should be solved the same whether
using an XML container or a milestone.
