Spurred into action by Christian's comments, I have made two small sample
TEI-XML/XSL "kits" available on my site. One is the previously-announced
bibliography set, and other is a newly created article set, based on a
paper-in-progress of mine, pre-linked to the DTD, XSL, and so forth. I made
this for the purpose of allowing XML beginners a chance to see how they
might go about writing their papers and creating bibliographies with
XML/XSL. I have included below the announcement message that I used for the
humanities lists I subscribe to.
The setup is located at

Subject: Sample Application Kits for Articles and Bibliographies in
For researchers who are interested in having a writing environment that
allows for the greatest degree of open-endedness in terms of final
publication options--especially when those options include web
it is clear that the combination of XML with XSL style sheets is one of
most powerful and interesting alternatives.
The problem for most academics, however, who are interested in trying XML
own writing and publication is finding out exactly where and how to start.
For many, the
technical challenge seems overwhelming.
As a way of trying to help overcome this technical impediment, I have
recently prepared two sample application "kits" which the average
user should be able to download, set up, and begin to use with relative
ease. These are:
(1) A sample bibliography, and
(2) A sample article (my own, a draft in progress)
In both cases, all you have to do is go to the site, read the basic
instructions, download the ZIP package, unzip it, and go to work. Both
(1) An XML source file.
(2) The related Document Typed Definition files, already linked and ready
(3) The related XSL style sheets, also already linked and ready to go.
may also play with these and try to adjust them.
(4) A set of instructions. The instructions for the article are more
detailed than those for the bibliography.
