Using the basic TEI structural elements

7. Why divisions rather than pages?

Because a division can start on one page (page 5 for example) and finish on another (page 6)

We use an empty element <pb> to mark the boundary between pages, rather than enclosing each page in a <div type="page">.

<pbn="5"/> <divtype="cartoon">...</div> <divtype="review"> <head>Egypt in Venice</head>... <pbn="6"/> ... </div> <divtype="cartoon">...</div> <divtype="verse"> <head>Enigma</head>... </div> <divtype="snippets">...</div>

The sequence in which divisions appear is rather arbitrary.
