wdd6 10 WordPress plugins to enhance your blog’s typography
Have you ever visited a blog and noticed immediately how the typography added sophistication and really made the content stand out? Perhaps it was an elegant typeface that fit the theme of the blog, or white space that was used proficiently throughout the layout. Whatever it was, it caught your eye, and you probably wondered how they did it.

TEI to MODS Mapping Issues and Challenges – LETRS/ETDC/E-Text Planning – Confluence

What: A conceptual mapping (and eventually xslt for transformation) between the TEI Header (specifically the headers for the Indiana Magazine of History project) and the Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS)

Why: We considered using MODS to capture article-level metadata for the project. We eventually decided to keep all of the bibliographic information within the TEI itself, with the understanding that we might eventually want to switch to MODS (as the Independent Header becomes obsolete). This mapping will make that transition easier.
