Direc­tory macros/latex/contrib/semantic-markup

The semantic-markup package provides a set of simple commands to allow for semantic markup.
The commands are inspired by the XML elements of the Text Encoding Initiative (http://www.tei-c.org).
They are intended especially for scholarly writing in the humanities, including about music.
The goal is simply to allow scholars to write with attention to meaning and content rather than to formatting.

The package provides several semantic replacements for \emph and quoting commands, such as \term, \foreign, \mentioned, \soCalled, and \quoted.
It also provides a Footnote environment so that long footnotes can be more cleanly separated from the main text.
Because the author is a music scholar, the package also includes some macros for musical symbols and other basic notations for musical analysis.
All the commands can be easily redefined as needed.

se­man­tic-markup – Mean­ing­ful se­man­tic markup in the spirit of the Text En­cod­ing Ini­tia­tive

The pack­age pro­vides sim­ple com­mands to al­low au­thors (es­pe­cially schol­ars in the hu­man­i­ties) to write with a fo­cus on con­tent rather than pre­sen­ta­tion. The com­mands are in­spired by the XML el­e­ments of the Text En­cod­ing Ini­tia­tive. Com­mands like \term and \for­eign are aliases for \emph. \quoted and \soCalled are aliases for quot­ing com­mands. Th­ese com­mands could be eas­ily re­de­fined for dif­fer­ent for­mats.

The pack­age also pro­vides a foot­note en­vi­ron­ment so that long foot­notes can be more cleanly sep­a­rated from the main text.

Be­cause the au­thor is a mu­sic scholar, the pack­age also in­cludes some macros for mu­si­cal sym­bols and other ba­sic no­ta­tions for mu­si­cal anal­y­sis.
