… Ambiguity

I remember back when President Bush was in the White House.

Bush, George Herbert Walker President of the United States Bush, George W. President of the United States

You can use this same technique if there are two or more people who are ambiguously referred to, or easily confused in a text. In the example above, we see that "president Bush" could either be George Herbert Walker Bush or George Dubya.

In these cases, we create an alt element, with an xml:id, which points to both personography entries. Whenever we use ref, and point to the xml:id of the alt, we are saying, this is a reference to one of the personography entries listed, but not both.
