Looks like a great site! I particularly like the validation aspects.
A couple of minor points:
(a) There would seem to be lots of opportunity of more interlinking with the guidelines. For example tag names could link to the tag page in the guidelines.
(b) I'm not entirely sure about the usefulness of the TEI resources list. There are already a great many lists on the web of TEI resources, when perhaps we need fewer more frequently updated and better maintained ones.
(c) It would be great to see an index into the examples by tag / attribute.
Your call for examples is an interesting one. Maybe this is something that nascent Linguistics SIG could work on? The tutorials are clearly written in TEI (and downloadable, thank you), what are the other sections written in?

Subject: TEI by Example launched
We're very pleased to announce the completion and launch of TEI by
TEI By Example (TBE) offers a series of freely available online tutorials
walking individuals through the different stages in marking up a document
in TEI (Text Encoding Initiative). Besides a general introduction to text
encoding, step-by-step tutorial modules provide example-based
introductions to eight different aspects of electronic text markup for the
humanities. Each tutorial module is accompanied with a dedicated examples
section, illustrating actual TEI encoding practise with real-life
examples. The theory of the tutorial modules can be tested in interactive
tests and exercises. The tutorial materials are contextualised with a TBE
validator application, allowing you to test your TEI encoding as you type!
We hope you will consider using TEI by Example in your (online)teaching
and refer students of markup to these tutorials.
We also hope you will submit more examples of encoding for inclusion in TBE.
We're eager to receive your comments and learn about your use of TEI by
example in (self-)teaching environments.
