here is another case: in the TEI schema, these two variants are possible:

1) <p> some text .. <li><item>...</item></li> more text ...</p>


2) <p> some text .. </p><li><item>...</item></li> more text ...</p>

without thinking about the markup structure, both means: "there is a
paragraph, a list, and another paragraph". But in 2), the list is inside
the <p> element, so it looks like "there is a paragraph, it contains
some text, a list, and more text".

what would be the appropriate usage of withinText for such cases?

Sorry, these questions repeat many discussions we had already, but my
impression is that for withinText it would be beneficial to have many
examples in the tag set draft, both for 1) versus 2), and for
<ftnote><para>bla</para></ftnote> versus <ft>bla</ft>. What do you
think? Also, it might be useful to have a reference to TMX, since it
seems to me (without really knowing it) a use case for sub flow.

Cheers,

Felix
