There are a couple of projects based in Oxford which might be worth
for more information in this area:
- The Oxyrhynchus Papyri. They are certainly using standards based
on or consistent with the APIS project for their online database, although
I'm not sure of their use of XML.
The main web site can be found at:
and information on imaging and markup can be found here:
- Vindolanda Tablets Online. Which provides an online XML transcription of
Roman tablets, and also incorporates metadata compatible with
other APIS databases.
Hope this helps,
