One solution to this kind of problem is to replace the markup by text, and
then treat it as an analyze-string problem:

Interesting! Is my assumption right that if I need to do additional work with the "bar" example element, I should use the grouping approach?

The real example is my typical citation. If I footnote a citation, I need to move the footnote mark outside the end-of-sentence period. E.g. in one style I'd have:

... text (Doe, 1999).

... and in another:

... text.[1]

But I need to do a ton of processing with that bar/citation element.

OTOH, I suppose I could use two modes; one to process the citation, and the other to clean up the punctuation?
