Journal and diary entries

Encoding of diary and journal entries using div type="entry"

Documents whose organization is based on regular chronological entries have a certain family resemblance and a number of shared features. In this category we include journals, logs, and diaries, as well as any other kinds of documents with regular temporal subdivisions (for instance, long letters covering multiple days which constitute a kind of epistolary diary; see example 2). The individual entries typically include some indication of time (and often of place as well), either at the beginning or at the end of the entry. This information often closely resembles the dateline of a letter, and as with letters is encoded with dateline, enclosing a date and possibly a placeName.

The entries themselve should be encoded with div type="entry".
