I'd like to advise the TEI community to respond broadly to this
request from DiMeMa, Inc. CONTENTdm is widely used in the library
communities, and it would be a great help to the TEI community to
have good support in CONTENTdm for TEI. Ideally, we can supply them
with plenty and diverse documents, so they are aware that the TEI
world, even the library TEI world, is not restricted to TEI Lite. It
would also be useful to send them examples representing a variety of
languages/scripts with lots of non-Latin Unicode ranges represented.
I'll be sending examples from our Swinburne Archive and other
projects and encourage others to participate in this effort.
