describes the material on which the document is written. Contains full text or a element structure with compulsory element <material>.
General Comment: The <support> element, by contrast, may contain a detailed prose description of the material on which a manuscript is written. Phrase-level elements may be used to tag specific terms of interest if so desired: as in the following example the <material>, <ref>, and <term> elements have been used for this purpose: <form><p>codex</p></form> <support> <p>Mostly <material>paper</material>, with watermarks <term>unicorn</term> (<ref>Briquet 9993</ref>) and <term>ox</term> (close to <ref>Briquet 2785</ref). The first and last leaf of each quire, with the exception of quires xvi and xviii, are constituted by bifolia of <material>parchment</material>, and all seven miniatures have been painted on inserted singletons of <material>parchment</material>.</p> </support> (p+ | (overview?, watermarks?)) what about size, written space etc.?
