How better to present these dates?[edit]

In the Kugyō section:

............................................... lifetime, 773-843
.... time in office (832-843)
.......... Sadaijin (832-843), Fujiwara Otsugu (藤原緒嗣), 773-843
  • Sadaijin (832-843), Fujiwara Otsugu (藤原緒嗣), 773-843 <:ref>Brown, D. (1979). Gukanshō, p. 283.</ref>
  • Sadaijin, Minamoto Tokiwa (源常), 844-854<:ref>Brown, p. 283.</ref>
  • Udaijin, Kiyohara Natsuno (清原夏野), 832-837<:ref>Brown, p. 283.</ref>
  • Udaijin, Fujiwara Mimori (藤原三守), 838-840<:ref>Brown, p. 283.</ref>
  • Udaijin, Minamoto Tokiwa (源常), 840-844
  • Udaijin, Tachibana Ujitomo (橘氏公), 844-847<:ref>Brown, p. 283.</ref>
  • Udaijin, Fujiwara Yoshifusa (藤原良房), 848-857<:ref>Brown, p. 284.</ref>

In the intial edit, I intended to present the dates during which someone held a specific court title, but that now seems too ambitious for a start-level article. The intention had been to explain the sequence of serial officeholders with these dates.

Instead, it's probably better to simply list the birth/death dates. Arguably, it might be possible (or even preferable) to include both sets of dates as the information becomes available ...? --Ooperhoofd 17:41, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
