DocBook and TEI (see http://norman.walsh.name/2003/10/09/dei
TEI is expressly designed for literary texts. And Sebastian Rahtz has

like "book->chapter->scene->para." I've been mapping "scene" to
"sect1", "skip"s to "sect2," etc. This works fairly well, but the semantic
tags don't really match the elements, which, after all, is the whole purpose of
So, DocBook Technical Committee, is there any chance of adding a
"novel" hierarchy to the existing "technical document" hierarchy?
