     <DIV3>s are used in poem (17) with TYPE="section"

        ¶ De receptore firmarum  (p. 319)
        ¶ De Auenario.           (p. 319)
     <DIV4>s are used in poem (16) for divisions marked
     by the bold headings ("Ver" "Estas" etc.) on
     pp. 169-70 only.
     Some of the poems are in stanzas, which should be
     recorded with the <LG> tag, e.g.:
       poem (1) in 7-line stanzas
       poem (7) in 7-line stanzas
       poem (11) in stanzas of various length, most
         of them beginning with a large initial capital.
       poem (12) in 8-line stanzas
       poem (14) in 8-line stanzas with stanza headings
       poem (16) in verse paragraphs of various sizes,
         usually beginning with a large initial capital
         (but the "F" "R" "S" at the bottom of page
         139 should be simply coded as <B>)
       poem (20) in 8-line stanzas
     If there is no obvious stanza structure, just
     use lines (<L>) without putting them in groups.


  Folio and page references usually appear in brackets in the
  margins, and should as usual be placed at the end of the
  corresponding line of text.
  [Fol. 86. b.]            = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="86b">
  [Fol. 87.]               = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="87a">
  [Fol. 86, back, col. 1.] = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="86b:1">
  [Fol. 86, back, col. 2.] = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="86b:2">
  [Page 31.]               = <MILESTONE UNIT="page" N="31">
  [Fol.207]                = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="207a">
  [Fol.207, back.]         = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="207b">
  Sometimes they are in-line in parentheses, and should
  be placed wherever in the text that they seem to apply
  (usually, the beginning of a section or item).
  (fol. 43 b.)      = <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="43b">
  Occasionally, they will be linked to the text by a
  superscripted reference number or by an asterisk, 
  in which case the <MILESTONE> element should
  be inserted in the text in place of the reference 
  number or asterisk.
  [1 Page 32.]      = <MILESTONE UNIT="page" N="32">
  [* Page 108.]     = <MILESTONE UNIT="page" N="108">
  [* p. 196]        = <MILESTONE UNIT="page" N="196">


  Most of the notes are standard footnotes with footnote
  numbers, which should be treated as usual, but there
  are also various odd notes of every possible variety,
  attached to headings, in the margins, in parentheses
  or brackets in-line, in brackets at the foot of the
  page, etc. Apply the usual principles as best you can!
