Text Encoding Initiative Announces Discount Digitization Programme

The Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) has just launched a new digitization program, AccessTEI. This program allows member institutions to outsource the transcription and basic structural encoding of source material (whether in print or manuscript, in any language, any sized job), at bulk prices with Apex Covantage, a leader in digitization outsourcing. The program features an easy-to-use web-based portal (http://accesstei.apexcovantage.com/). [read more...]

event: International Symposium on XML for the Long Haul: Issues in the Long-term preservation of XML

02/08/2010

Nearly everywhere, people who create, store, query, or serve XML expect it to live a very long time. XML is platform- and application-independent, and by and large it is platforms and applications that vanish. If by encoding information in XML we have freed it from dependency on specific platforms or applications, have we succeeded in ensuring that the XML can live long into the future?

Or is there more to it than using XML? How can we best ensure that our data, all our data, and its semantics survive this year, next year, ten years? into the next millennium? Commercial information [read more...]

tool: CHET-C (Chapel Hill Electronic Text-Converter)

Software tool designed to convert digital texts that employ standard typographic editorial conventions into EpiDoc-compliant XML files. A series of regular expressions are applied to the source document and the results are placed into a “shell file” (i.e., a template), which can be customised in advance. The regular expressions are stored in a separate configuration file to permit customisation, but this file is generated from regular expressions embedded in the EpiDoc Guidelines source files. This arrangement permits robust automated and user-driven self-tests within the EpiDoc webapp and facilitates a high degree of coordination across EpiDoc tools. Prior versions exist (MSAccess + VBA and Java, both now deprecated), but more recent development has focused on a JavaScript version that will run without plugins in a modern web browser.

tool: SoSOL (Son of SOL)

Tool under construction at the University of Kentucky as part of the IDP second phase. It is an editing tool which aims to make the task of creating EpiDoc-conformant XML editions of epigraphic and papyrological texts manageable to users without needing to edit the raw XML. As such it will include conversions tools such as CHET-C, as well as a tags-free editing environment and template handler.
