<sentence/> and <dialogue/>Jacob Deitloff on 15 November 2011 at 2:08 pm
In the markup thus far, sometimes we have situations where we have something like:

<sentence><dialogue>"Hello."</dialogue> said Satan.</sentence><sentence><dialogue>"How are you?"</dialogue>.</sentence>

According to English grammar, this can be one sentence, like so:

<sentence><dialogue>"Hello."</dialogue> said Satan. <dialogue>"How are you?"</dialogue>.</sentence>

In our document, we have both, and inconsistently. I feel like we need to choose one or the other, and then make sure everything is standard through our document. Your comments?

I think I prefer the second way.

But they are two sentences... unless the dialogue is split by a comma and a speakingVP and then restarts with a conjunction.
