Editors. I for one don't want to have to type tags by hand.
Many browsers, formatters, etc will of course be able to use WF files,
but I don't see how you can sensibly create a TEI file without some
form of mechanical guidance. It could be a Schema instead, but it has
to be something, hasn't it?
This current fad for pretending that SGML is dead because XML solves
all our problems is becoming tedious.
