Has any TEI-based project ever considered the problem of marking up medieval wills or deeds of gift in such a way as to support extraction of information about material culture in general, but especially books and other possessions indicating the interests and tastes of the owner? The primary objective is to create a schema closely based on standard TEI practices that would support tracking of manuscript works in particular, but the documents also contain information about other possessions that may interest historians.
Advice from anyone with comparable experience would be greatly appreciated.
