SGML/XML Archive Sites Using WWW, GOPHER, FTP, etc.
SGML resources are available on dozens of Internet sites, accessible using WWW (HTTP), Gopher, FTP, and similar protocols. The following section lists some of the more important archive sites. The sites names are organized under three categories:
The premier Internet FTP archive for SGML is this is The SGML Repository, located at the Department of Informatics [UiO Institutt for Informatikk (Ifi/UiO)], University of Oslo, Norway. Its URL is: ftp://ftp.ifi.uio.no/pub/SGML, and an overview of the archive contents is given in the README file. The archive was created and is supported by Erik Naggum. The archive and associated services of the SGML Repository (digests, archived and indexed copies of 'comp.text.sgml' postings, strongly researched commentary on SGML issues by Erik Naggum) represent a represent a wealth of SGML information. Ongoing maintenance of the archive is made possible in part through a donation from the SGML Users' Group, SGML UG SIGhyper, and SGML Open. Questions regarding The SGML Repository should be directed to Erik Naggum (SGML.email@example.com). Mirror sites for the SGML Repository include SUNET - http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/text-processing/sgml/ [so! as of September 05, 1996, but hereafter also try www.sunet.se], and in the US, the Sunsite - UNC FTP server.
Darmstadt: THD SGML Archive
The THD SGML Archive (URL: ftp://ftp.th-darmstadt.de/pub/text/sgml/) is sponsored by the Computer Science Department, Technical University of Darmstadt. It mirrors a subset of the information at the SGML Repository but includes some information not at the SGML Repository. The collection represents the work of Joachim Schrod, maintainer of the THD SGML Archive (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org). Connect via FTP, or see Darmstadt -- SGML (Overview) in HTML
Steve Pepper's highly valuable "Whirlwind Guide to SGML Tools" is available in HTML and text format at this site: http://www.falch.no/people/pepper/sgmltool/. The primary files in text format are also mirrored at the SGML Repository and other larger archive sites.
Original and test distributions of James Clark's parser materials (SGMLS, SP) are available on this machine (URL: ftp://ftp.jclark.com/pub). The site also supports an important collection of material on DSSSL. Most data is mirrored on the larger archives as well. Connect via FTP or HTTP (WWW) protocols: FTP to ftp.jclark.com/pub/; JClark WWW resources.
Original sources for Lennart Staflin's PSGML editing tool SGML: Lysator PSGML (Remote file ftp.lysator.liu.se/pub/sgml), normally mirrored on the larger archives.
UIC - TEI
The authoritative FTP site for the TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) DTDs, Writing System declarations, and Guidelines documentation is ftp://ftp-tei.uic.edu/pub/tei/. Link via FTP to UIC. Many sites mirror this file system and its mail-based (LISTSERV) counterpart; see further in the primary TEI section. TEI materials are also on the official TEI WWW server.
Oxford Text Archive (OTA)
The authoritative FTP site for a significant corpus of literary texts encoded in (TEI) SGML by the Oxford Text Archive project. See, for example, the "/public/english/" and "/public/french/" subdirectories on the fileserver when you connect via FTP to Oxford (OTA), or connect via WWW connection to The Oxford Text Archive in the UK. The Humanities Text Initiative at the University of Michigan hosts a North American mirror site for the OTA materials, and sometimes provides a faster link: ftp://ftp.hti.umich.edu/pub/ota/public. Also, SUNET mirrors the OTA server materials: http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/etext/ota/public.
