Is this in any way formally different from a pericope or section? I 
would simply use <div type="section">. If you need to carry any 
additional information (e.g. the pe and samekh marks) you have the 
subtype and n attributes on <div>.

I don't believe we do anything special with pe & samekh in our existing 
texts other than perhaps bold them for presentation if they are present.
