Added choice element allowing empty or item from list of normalized names of judges. The list items can't include a space character (I don't know why - I researched for an hour and all documentation indicates the space character should present no problem). I've put those elements into the file "bailey_proofing.rng" which is the file that the proofer will use.
I still have to modify the regular expressions in the NameJudgeJuryAge4 section of howto_regular081017.txt to look for the text values and replace them with the normalized ones.

Simon Devereaux has approximately 10,000 records of people convicted in potentially capital cases between 1710 and 1840 in London heard at the Old Bailey court. This project will create a web-based database which will allow interested researchers and members of the public to compose queries on that data (e.g. women charged with robbery 1710-1720). It must be able to support a range of queries and produce output allowing researchers to identify trends in judicial practice over that time.
