Letters as prefatory material [172]

Abstract

Encoding letters which serve as prefatory material

Discussion

For letters which are serving another structural purpose (such as prefaces or dedications), the WWP uses <div type="[whatever the thing is. e.g. prefatory]">, with the appropriate letter components such as <salute>, <p>, <closer>, etc. nested inside without an enclosing <div type="letter">. In other words, the letter’s structural function within the larger text overrides its function as a letter.
