label terms

Simon, did you figure out a solution for the locales?

If not, what about this?

 <term name="editor">
   <verb>Edited By</verb>
   <single>Editor</single>
   <multiple>Editors</multiple>
 </term>

Am open to other alternatives; haven’t had time to think about it
much …

Sorry, I’ve been working on scrapers the last few days and haven’t yet dealt
with this.

I’m still partial to an approach where you could have various term sets,
then apply these sets to a label, e.g.:

Editor Editor Edited By

Then…

This approach has the advantage of generalizing fairly well for locators,
although we’d still need to solve the period problem (p. 5 with the suffix
"." but ¶ 5 with no suffix) unless we decided to define a separate
locator-period term set.

If you like this approach, I can commit it tomorrow.

Like I said before, I think that’s solvable by recognizing one as text
and the other as symbol. The former can have a period, the latter not.

If you need something explicit, then use an attribute on a term to
indicate it can have a period added.

If you like this approach, I can commit it tomorrow.

Sounds good.
