<chronitem> Chronology List Item
A formatting element that keeps a date paired with an associated event or group of events within a Chronology List <chronlist>. Each <chronitem> contains a <date> (either a single date or date range) coupled with an <event> or description of what occurred during that time. When multiple <event>s are associated with a single <date>, the <event>s are bundled in an <eventgrp> tag, which is then easily paired with the appropriate <date>.
date, event, eventgrp
