Markup - Validate - Transform
Introduction to Markup with the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) standard
Welcome to the Workshop "Digitization in the Humanities" at Rice University, April 2013. Here you can find the slides and code examples used in the section on TEI Markup. The aim of this section is to show participants how to use XML-TEI data, in particular how to check the data for well-formedness, how to validate it and how to transform it.
If you are using your own computer you will need:
- Open Office or any other application that can open .odp slideshows (Libre Office, newer versions of MS Powerpoint, KOffice, etc.). Users of Apple products will have to download Open Office or such, since the default presentation program that comes with these machines does, as usual, not work with open standards.
- XML-Editor: There are many possibilities here, from a full fledged, cross platform XML Programming environment such as Oxygen, to free plugins for text editors. For Windows users I recommend Notepad++ and its XML tools plugin (Here is information on how to plugin the plugin). For Linux try JEdit and relevant plugins. On a Mac for this workshop I recommend the trial version of Oxygen.
