Dear Justin,

in our projects we ran into the shortcomings of the current app definition as
well and there have been at least two threads on TEI-L about it: "Equivalent to
<app> on structural level?" and "app and structural elements". Reading there, no really satisfying solution was proposed but the appeal to join
the working group within the Manuscripts SIG concerning the revision of the
current critical apparatus module ;-)

But maybe others have come up with something in the meantime?

All the best Peter

Dear list,

a project that I'm working on is encoding a set of four varying dramatic texts
using internal parallel-segmentation.

We're using the manuscript as the lemma, and some of the other versions contain
songs that are not included in the manuscript.

The problem we're having is that we don't seem to be allowed to put <app> tags
around the complete song, i.e.:

<app> <rdg wit="#b"> <lg> <l>...</l> <l>...</l> <l>...</l> <l>...</l> </lg> </rdg> </app>

Is there any way to identify the complete song as a variant reading, rather than
having to tag the contents of each <l> as a variant?

Best, Justin.
