Exactly. Take a look at this. http://www.212.net/apples/apple9.htm There 
are many subjects, even though it is a classification for "apple." For this 
kind of prose resource, how would we create subject indicators? Create 
named anchors for each of the subjects?

Bernard, I like your first diagram. I guess that I would like to see only 
the essential definition with with genus and species. I think we need to 
ask, what is the minimum content for  the unambiguous identity of the 
subject "apple."

In your second diagram, the graphic would really be considered an 
occurrence, not the subject indicator? Best to leave the picture out or 
explain that it is an occurrence?

Now if the subject was a "red delicious apple" then the picture for this 
more specific instance be considered a subject indicator, not the occurrence?
