In May and June this year, there was a discussion on the TEI mailing
list about prosopographical tags. This lead to a suggestion that
detailed information about persons (physical and legal), dates,
events, places, objects etc. and their interpretation could be marked
up outside the text, and that this could be connected in on-going
ontology work being done e.g. in the Museum community, such as the
Conceptual Reference Model (CRM).
At NZETC we have a project under way which uses the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model linked to a collection of TEI documents. We have an ontology which is a small subset of the CRM. We use MADS to maintain a simple table of authority for the people etc named in the TEI docs. We use XSLT to harvest the MADS and TEI as XTM (XML Topic Maps) and merge them together using the open-source software TM4J.
So I'd be very interested to hear about other people's experience with similar projects, though unfortunately I won't be at Baltimore.
