Andreas Witt. Guideline: Multiple Hierarchies. In Digital Historical Corpora- Architecture, Annotation, and Retrieval. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 6491, pp. 1-7, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2007)


As the title of the Dagstuhl Seminar ``Digital Historical Corpora - Architecture, Annotation, and Retrieval'' already suggests, corpus architecture and corpus annotation is an important topic for representing (historical) texts. Especially the limitation of SGML-based markup languages to tree structured annotations raises a special problems when dealing with manuscripts: How is it possible to represent overlap. This problem was addressed by the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) and by several scholars. This text gives an overview of several techniques for handling the overlap problem.
