Subject: Re: [dita] Reasonable to allow <data> in ol/ul/sl/dl?


I am working on a project now where a specialised form of data will be required.

The specialised tags need to represent financial data such as exchange rates. I was thinking <data> was the most appropriate tag for this to be specialised from. 

Therefore allowing <data> anywhere would be necessary.
