RFC 6129: The ‘application/tei+xml’ mediatype

“Petit à petit, de nombreux formats XML obtiennent un type MIME, comme indiqué dans le RFC 3023. Ces types permettent d’identifier un contenu de manière précise sur le réseau, et ont la forme application/XXX+xml où XXX indique le format précis. Ici, notre RFC concerne le type application/tei+xml, pour le format TEI, un format de documents très utilisé dans le monde des bibliothèques et dans les sciences humaines en général (le secteur de l’étude des documents anciens est un utilisateur très visible de TEI, mais ce n’est pas le seul).

En effet, TEI (Text Encoding and Interchange) est un format utilisé depuis longtemps, par les musées, les bibliothèques, et des chercheurs, par exemple pour encoder un manuscrit qu’on a réussi à déchiffrer. Nous sommes donc ici à l’intersection du monde des geeks et de celui d’Umberto Eco. Si vous voulez voir des exemples de documents TEI, on en trouve un peu partout, par exemple une version d’« Alice au pays des merveilles » issue du Projet Gutenberg et TEIsée. L’original est en http://www.gnutenberg.de/pgtei/0.5/examples/alice/alice.tei mais j’en ai fait une version légèrement modifiée pour en retirer ce qui était spécifique de Gutenberg.”

TEI: AccessTEI – A Digitization Benefit for Members of the Text Encoding Initiative

With the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation's Scholarly Communications and Information Technology programme, and in cooperation with Apex CoVantage, LLC, a leader in content management outsourcing, the Text Encoding Initiative is pleased to announce the launch of its new AccessTEI digitization program.

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.).

TEI @ Oxford Summer School 2010

The TEI @ Oxford Summer School is a three day course introducing the recommendations of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) for encoding of digital text. It combines in-depth coverage of the latest version of the TEI Recommendations for the encoding of digital text with practical workshops on related technologies. It includes an introduction to mark-up, explanations of the TEI Guidelines, and approaches to publishing TEI texts. Practical exercises expose you hands-on experience of a wide range of TEI customisation, editing, and publication.

ODD (One Document Does it all) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ODD stands for "One Document Does it all". Part of the Text Encoding Initiative, it is an XML-based format for writing human-readable descriptions of XML files. ODD allows its users to customize the P5 version of the TEI XML formats by writing XML schemas in a literate programming fashion.

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.

Symposium on TEI and Scholarly Publishing | Digital Humanities Observatory

This symposium, to be held in conjunction with a meeting of the TEI Council, will explore such questions through a series of presentations outlining the current state of the art in institutional publishing operations such as those of universities in the UK, France, US, and Australia, from the point of view of private sector publishers (among which the NLM DTDs are increasingly adopted), and from international initiatives where interoperability has been identified as a major factor (e.g., PEER, which includes European research institutions, repositories, and STM publishers). The objective is to identify current difficulties in making publication systems interoperable and identify priority actions for the TEI to intervene in this arena.
