Intensive Introduction to TEI: Materials for Download


For our exercises you can encode either your own material or one of the document samples we've provided. Either way, you will need to use a schema. We have provided a generic TEI schema for your use during these exercises. In order to demonstrate some of TEI's capabilities, it includes a lot of TEI, and thus likely to be too large for most practical purposes.

This schema is called workshop, and is included in a set of files we have prepared for you. To use it:

  1. Obtain the TEI_workshop/ directory. Either:
  2. Whichever method you choose, when you're done you should have one directory TEI_workshop/, which contains two directories documents/ (which starts with 1 file, but you will probably create more) and support/ (which contains 5 files)
  3. the instance file is stored in TEI_workshop/documents/ and is called workshop_template.xml ... open it with oXygen, either by using oXygen's "Open..." menu item or by dragging to document onto the oXygen icon.
  4. To view the file as styled by CSS, open it in a browser (preferably Firefox — that's what I tested it with)
  5. The documents already point to the schema and CSS stylesheets
