I've been approached by a couple of Harvard PhD students in East Asian
Languages and Cultures who are looking for help in setting up the
framework for a Buddhist Studies related Chinese-Sanskrit-Tibetan
terminological database. I'm recommending that they try to do this in
XML, using TEI, and if they decide to go this route, I'll do my best
to advise them with my limited abilities.
One problem though, is that they are raw beginners with XML, and I am
on the other side of the globe here in Tokyo, so there is no way I can
sit down with them and take them through the basics of doing XML with
a tool such as <oXygen/>. Does anyone by any chance know someone at
Harvard doing XML in Humanities work who might be able to sit down
with these gentlemen for a couple of hours to take them through some
of the basics?
This is all still in the early stages, so there is no rush.
