What is it?

The <l> element indicates a verse line, and is therefore only used in the transcription of poetry. A stanza is encoded as a line group (<lg>) containing a number of lines (<l>). For our purposes, the <l> element is the poetry equivalent of the <seg> element in prose. As a result, <l>'s @n and @type attributes are used in the same way as they are in the <seg> element.
