Re: wysiwyhaf

This is an interesting turn of the discussion.  Lou is certainly correct in
distinguishing sharply between the goals of marking to indicate structure &
content of the text, from that of appropriate presentation.  But we will want
easily specified flexible connections between the these two functions.  Is
there, perhaps, an  analogue to an application programming interface
specification that would be a useful adjunct to the TEI standards (whether or
not they are part of the standards or part of the same enterprise)?  That is,
does it make sense to want some generic framework for indicating links or
hooks between document components and presentation? Should such a
specification be defined directly by readers or the presentation software
(which can be responsive to readers preferences)?
