I will do what I think best for the time being; the latter is one option.
I'll try first the tags I suggested;
I'm just not sure about pinning everything down to a nice authoritative 
reference other than the various texts of the period in question.

Anyway I'm going to try for a tag that is easily remembered for now by 
persons who have to deal with several tags (I really still am trying to make 
sense of frm and fro; I would never have guessed what they specified if it 
were not specified; I realize computer resources are important in deciding 
on the tags; but a text tag does not really take up that many resources; I 
can tell you that is a long list of tags to parse and at least if the tags 
could be easily remembered html coders would not have to repeatedly re-parse
