Summary description: Macros for meaningful semantic markup in the
spirit of the Text Encoding Initiative, especially for humanities and
music schola

Announcement text:

The semantic-markup package provides simple commands to allow authors
(especially scholars in the humanities) to write with a focus on
content rather than presentation. Commands like \term and \foreign are
aliases for \emph; \quoted and \soCalled are aliases for quoting
commands. These commands could be easily redefined for different
formats. The package also provides a Footnote environment so that long
footnotes can be more cleanly separated from the main text.
