No harm in that, but if its all you want you might as well use HTML
directly. The point of the TEI markup is to record an interpretation
of the structure, not to mimic a layout

project, I had 20 fiction writers to manage and there was no way in Hell
that I would have used Word or any word processor since I didn't want to
mess with layout. the best way in my mind to do this was through

I don't think DocBook is suited for poetry. But my project only
contained two poems so I used a work-around.
