Encoding Seminar Resources

The TEI Guidelines

For everyone

For advanced users


Note that useful slide sets that we did not use at this particular seminar will be available on the series resource page soon.

The single file links are to the TEI source file, which has a CSS style sheet associated with it. The slides links are to the XHTML files generated from the TEI source. (The XHTML is generated using an XSLT stylesheet.)

Selected Project Sites

Documentation, etc.



Because these templates demonstrate how to link to a CSS stylesheet, and because they link to the empty template CSS stylesheet, it is likely that with most browsers clicking on the templates of XML documents will not prove very helpful. You will need to at least "view source", if not save them locally ("Save as…").


Associating a Schema in oXygen

To tell oXygen which schema to use for a particular XML file, choose "XML Docuent > Associate schema…" from the "Document" menu. (There is also a little icon you can click on.) In the "Associate schem…" dialog box that appears, select the "RelaxNG Schema" tab and the "Compact syntax" button. Then find the correct schema, in one of two ways:

  1. copy & paste the URL to the desired schema into the address box, or
  2. download the schema from that URL to your local TEIseminar directory, then click on the folder next to the address box, and select the file you just downloaded.

Using our stylesheets

The XSLT fstylesheet you need to transform one of our TEI source documents into HTML slides, handout notes, and lecture notes is yapsOut.xslt. Some rough documentation for its use is available in the schema documentation.

We use several CSS stylesheets for viewing the input source TEI file and the output slides or notes.
