Subject: RE: [dita] Review of Proposals 13010 and 13031

Hi Eliot,

I agree with the semantic of the registers, that is fine with me. But wouldn´t I just tag the corresponding text as <register>text</register> and let the style sheet create the overline.

The symmetry argument feels to much like formatting to me but on the other side a lot of DITA elements are kind of formatting may and symmetry could be an argument to be future-proof.

Overline is not restricted to formulas, that's just one obvious use.
Overline is a common convention in semiconductor content to indicate details
about registers and pins and whatnot. You can also see it as providing
symmetry with underline and line-through, that is, providing the third
option for where a line can go relative to the characters.
