Alright, that clears up that bit about the <divineName> element. When I saw
<divineName type='x-yhwh'> on p. 65, I thought that <divineName> might
encompass other types as well.
What about this solution:
. . . <name type="nonhuman" regular="God">Father</name> and of the <name
> type="person" regular="Jesus Christ">Son</name> and of the <name
> type="nonhuman">Holy Spirit</name> . . .
Note that the attribute regular="Holy Spirit" would have been redundant on
the last name.
Also, are we correct in leaving the definite article outside the element in
