Comprehensive CSS Stylesheet – TEIWiki

The following is an attempt to gradually build CSS for each TEI element, paralleling the default TEI stylesheets (while also potentially serving as a kind of discussion center for how the stylesheets ought to operate (see Formatting TEI documents on how there is a need for this despite TEI being agnostic as to output formatting), at least for issues pertaining solely to formatting as opposed to semantics), by indicating here necessary deviations from the XHTML stylesheets (due to CSS constraints) or potentially desirable alternatives, etc.).

What is the TEI Demonstrator?

The purpose of the DARIAH TEI Demonstrator (TD) is to demonstrate the practical benefits of using TEI for the representation of digital resources of all kinds, but primarily of original source collections within the arts and humanities. The Demonstrator aims to make it easy for humanities researchers to share TEI-encoded texts with others, and to compare their encoding practice with that of others in the TEI community. It also aims to show the "TEI Advantage", by showing how TEI can be used for textual materials in many languages, both for richly encoded complex materials and for minimally encoded basic texts.
