Thanks for getting back on this so quickly.
In addition to the wiki advice...
Looking at the OSIS manual (pp. 103-105) it seems that variants are a
type of note ("x-variant") or reading (rdg type="x-variant").
The ThML markup (using divs) would seem to work as well if the attribute
To my thinking, the mark-up should be able to
1. contain w elements with their own lemma and morphology information
(so that each reading can be tagged fully) and
2. be grouped with primary, secondary, tertiary, etc., readings for a
single word or phrase
Let me know what you come up with. Thanks again for responding to this.
