6.9 Dedicatory Poems

6.9.1 SGML

Normally use the unnumbered <ttdv type="dedicatory poem">to enclose the dedicatory poem. . The authorship of the section will usually mean that it is textual in nature. Note that the <heading> and <signed> tags may be nested within the <pmdv> tag in this example, from John Donne's 1633 poems.
<pmdv type="dedicatory poem">
<f type="i"> Hexastichon Bibliopol{ae} <f type="r"> .
I See in his last preach'd, and printed booke ,
His Picture in a sheete; in <f type="i"> Pauls
  <f type="r"> I looke ,
And see his Statue in a sheete of stone,
And sure his body in the grave hath one:
Those sheetes present him dead, these if you buy,
You have him living to Eternity .

6.9.2 COCOA

The dedicatory poem is declared with the <tt> tag as a dedicationpoem but must also be encoded, where appropriate, with a dedication text-type for its title, division numbers, and signature. The simple <author> tag, however, is used to tag each word in the poem with the name of the right author.
