    should be needed rarely, e.g. for the heading-supplied sections
    (TYPE="section") of the Bestiary (first item in the book).


  are used whenever a true stanzaic layout appears, e.g.
  in III, VI, X, XV, XVI, XVII, etc. Record stanza numbers 
  as the value of the "N" attribute of the <LG> tag, as usual.

  Folio references appear in square brackets in the margins,
  like this:

  [leaf 225]        =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="225">
  [leaf 225, back]  =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="225b">
  [leaf 226]        =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="226">
  [leaf 226, back]  =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="226b">
  [fol. 17 b.]      =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="17b">
  Sometimes they are keyed to the text by an asterisk,
  like this:
  [*leaf 264 b.]    =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="264b">
  [*leaf 265]       =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="265">
  [* leaf 10 a.]    =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="10a">
  [* leaf 10 b.]    =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="10b">
  [* Fol. 131.]     =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="131">
  [* Fol. 131 b.]   =  <MILESTONE UNIT="folio" N="131b">


 Most of the notes are standard footnotes (or occasionally
 marginal notes), tied to the text by superscripted 
 reference numbers. Treat these as usual
 with <NOTE PLACE="foot"> (or <NOTE PLACE="marg">) inserted 
 in the text in place of the reference number.
