You turn mixed content into non-mixed elements (temporarily, for the
purposes of storage or table-modeling) by instantiating  an implied _text_
element for each fragment of PCDATA.  You use an illegal "element" name so
that you can later distinguish between PCDATA pseudo-elements and real
elements.  The mixed example becomes, say,

<doc><~text>This is</~text> <strong><~text>very</~text></strong>

It looks awful but its function is not to be read and written but to be
crammed into a table model.
