And there is also no markup for mathematical and chemical formulas, for
product lists, ... It is not possible to have elements for all in HTML
because that way HTML will end with several thousands of elements.
Concerns should be separated and if you need better markup for poems
then p/br then you can embed TEI poem markup inside HTML document
(assuming you can use XML serialization).
