                 TEI P3 ON CD IS NOW AVAILABLE

Readers of this list will need no reminding that the full text of the
TEI Guidelines was prepared as an SGML document, from which those two
big green volumes were generated by automatic processing (and a fair bit
of cussing).  They will also probably be well aware that the text of the
Guidelines has been available electronically for free by anonymous file
transfer (in plain  ASCII or in SGML) for even longer; many will also
have found the excellent browsable version mounted at UVA's PAT server
and available over the Web from
Being in SGML, "The Guidelines" can be imported and processed by a whole
range of software systems -- a fact which gives us, as editors,
particular pleasure.

This is to announce the publication of another browsable electronic
version -- one that you can take home and read on a free-standing MAC or
PC, with all the searching and indexing capabilities we have come to
expect from good quality electronic texts. This one is published by
those nice people at Electronic Book Technologies, and is available now
>From the TEI at the SPECIAL PRICE of USD 75 or GBP 50 -- just the same
as the printed book.

The DynaTEXT edition, of course, can do a lot of things that the print
version cannot (though it doesn't make such a good door stop).  It is
available on a standard CD and can be installed on any machine capable
of running Microsoft Windows 3.1, or Apple Macintosh System 7.0 or
later.  You will need access to a machine with a CD-ROM drive for at
least a few minutes, but you don't need a CD-ROM drive on the machine on
which you install the DynaTEXT edition.

If you have a CD-ROM drive on your machine, you can either install just
the DynaTEXT browser on your hard disk (requires 3.25 Mb) and read the
text directly from the CD-ROM, or you can install the whole thing on
your hard disk (11.5 Mb).  If you don't have a CD-ROM drive of your own,
you'll need to use a machine which does have one, to make a set of
floppy disks from which you can install the text on your own machine.
So you do need access to a computer with a CD player for at least the
few minutes it takes to create these floppies.  And you'll need 11.5 Mb
of disk space.  A colour display screen is a really good idea. Most (but
not all) of the functions of the DynaText browser come built in, but you
can't use it to create new electronic books.

You can however use it to find answers for all those niggling little
questions that any serious user of the TEI Guidelines is always asking
("What's the content model for <front>?"--  "Where is fish mentioned in
P3?" -- "What are the attributes of the Metrical class?" -- "What on
earth is the oVar tag for?") in seconds!

or MasterCard.)
