Non-Structural Text-Parts

Non-structural text-parts, e.g. between blocks

A <milestone> is used to describe the support, rather than the structure, of the text. It can be used to mark a point in the text at which the support changes in some respect, for instance where a text is inscribed across a series of blocks and the editor wants to show the point at which one block ends and another begins. This can be represented by giving the <milestone> element a unit value of "block". Each <milestone> can also be given an n to allow the blocks (or whatever non-structural textpart is being described) to be numbered.
