#400 Example does not conform with description in Core chapter


The Core chapter, section 3.3.3, contains this:

Like other bibliographic references, the citation attached to a quotation may be represented simply by a pointer, as in this example:
Lexicography has shown little sign of being affected by the
work of followers of J.R. Firth, probably best summarized
in his slogan, <cit>
<quote>You shall know a word by the company it keeps.</quote>
<ref>(Firth, 1957)</ref>

The introductory text says that the example will contain a pointer, but it doesn't. It's not really clear whether the intent was to use a <ptr> tag, but either the text or the example needs to be changed.

    But it doesn't say "ptr", it says "pointer", and that term is used throughout the chapter synonymously with "cross reference", so I don't agree that this is really an error, But we could change it to "cross reference" if you like. Changing "attached to" to "associated with" might be good too.

    I've made that change in rev 10299. I still think there is a need for something in this chapter to explain an exemplify linking between quotations and references as discussed in this thread on tei-l:


    so I'm going to leave this ticket open, and assign it to myself.
