It's valid in the TEI schema, but does not seem to be in epidoc schema latest.

    This is not a bug. Nothing is valid inside <unclear> in EpiDoc, except text and <g/>. The theory being that if a character that is identified as a punctuation mark, or part of a punctuation mark, is ambiguous then that character should be tagged as unclear. (And how we display that is another question, as an underdot beneath a period or a colon, for example, would be pretty confusing.)

    If this doesn't cover what you want to do, can you explain your use-case a bit? If, for example, you want to use <pc/> as an empty element to represent a punctuation character that has no unicode encoding (analogous to how we use <g/>) then we need to think about (a) whether this is suitable use, rather than enclosing <g>, and only then potentially (b) changing the schema to allow pc in unclear.
