    If you are talking about designing a specific text process, then yes you
    have a choice, with two caveats:

    1) Your choice doesn't change the *meaning* of the text -- neither is a
    more or less correct encoding of the textual element you are trying to

    2) Don't expect your data to necessarily stay in the same form for the
    rest of its life (i.e., as it passes through other text processes)
