Dear Peter MacDonald,
If you wish, you can show them examples of files from the CELT corpus
(http://www.ucc.ie/celt/) We have over 7 million words online, including
texts in Irish, English, Latin and French and all are marked up in TEI.
From: TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) public discussion list

Subject: Typical TEI files
DiMeMa, Inc., the developers of CONTENTdm, which is a popular digital
collection management system, has shown an interest in supporting
documents encoded in TEI. They asked me to send them some examples of
TEI-encoded documents for their developers to examine.
The only TEI-encoded documents I have to send them from my own
collection are some manuscript letters and some journal articles. I
am not very experienced in TEI encoding and hesitate to send them my own
I'd really like to send them a link to a more "official" set of
TEI-encoded pages that can demonstrate to DiMeMa the wide range of
document types that can be encoded in TEI and that have been encoded
by experienced users of the TEI.
Can anyone point me to such a page or Web site?
If not, I guess I could just send them links to guidelines such as
or, point them to pages from the TEI P4 guidelines that discuss
various kinds of documents:
