<skip>

The element skip marks parts of a source that have been ignored or should be skipped, either shallowly (default) or deeply.

Note, the shallow skip of a <div> may result in the source with leaf divs that have the same reference, breaking the Leaf Div Uniqueness Rule (LDUR). See the section called “Flattened References, and the Leaf Div Uniqueness Rule”

This element is useful for ignoring extraneous divs, e.g., where a source has introduced divs that do not exist in other versions of the same work. For example, a transcription may group the topmost divisions of a text into parts, or may adopt superfluous divisions (e.g., introducing a <div> for chapter in the New Testament book Philemon, which does not have more than one chapter, and can be identified purely by verse).
