I would just like to add that some short examples of how to use OSIS
and TEI for dictionaries would be very helpful. By examples I just
mean a few entire entries done with different options with comments
explaining what was going on. Linking to the TEI page doesn't help me
very much, because it's hard to tell easily what's relevant and what
isn't. Also, the xsd is huge and a bit overwhelming to me. A few
examples showing how things are commonly used would be a help. What is
confusing is things like Entry vs EntryFree which has been discussed
here, but I'm afraid there are more things like that that *could* be
done different ways, but I really can't tell which is preferred.
