New tricks from an old dog: An overview of TEI P5

06491.BurnardLou.Paper.1042.pdf (0.3 MB)


This paper presents an update on the current state of development of the Text Encoding Initiative’s
Guidelines for Electronic Text Encoding and Interchange. Since the last major edition in 2002, which
saw the conversion of the Guidelines into XML, there has been substantial activity on adding new
content in areas of particular interest to historical corpus builders. The TEI has also reinvented itself
as a membership initiative and set up mechanisms for the continued development and maintenance of
the Guidelines. We contrast "old" and "new" TEI, and give a brief overview of some recent technical
enhancements to the system intended to facilitate expansion and customization of the scheme.
