Guidelines for Best Encoding Practices
Date: Mon, 2 Aug 1999 11:49:43 CDT From: "C. Perry Willett" <email@example.com> To: TEI-L@LISTSERV.UIC.EDU Subject: RFC: Guidelines for Best Encoding Practices
A draft of the "Guidelines for Best Encoding Practices" is available for comment on the web at http://www.indiana.edu/~letrs/tei. These guidelines are meant for projects using TEILite, and were drafted as part of the "TEI and XML in Digital Libraries" workshop held in July 1998, sponsored by the Digital Library Federation. A full description of the workshop and links to its reports can be found at http://www.hti.umich.edu/misc/ssp/workshops/teidlf/index.html.
The "Guidelines for Best Encoding Practices" were drafted by a Task Force of Working Group 2 of the Workshop (are you following this?). The Task Force members include:
- LeeEllen Friedland, Library of Congress
- Nancy Kushigian, University of California, Davis
- Christina Powell, University of Michigan
- David Seaman, University of Virginia
- Natalia Smith, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
- Perry Willett, Indiana University
The guidelines were approved by the larger working group, consisting of about 30 librarians from the United States, Canada and Europe. We presented the guidelines at the recent ACH/ALLC conference in Charlottesville, and we would now like to hear from others who use TEILite for their projects. Please send your comments and suggestions to me by September 30, 1999.
