It's notoriously hard for experts in technical fields recommend materials for
beginners, because the experts see the field in such different ways to
beginners. However, when I want examples of how to do stuff in TEI I
usually start at:
I cannot recommend the list strongly enough.
I also have a several-year-old copy of James's private XSL working
directory, which I find very useful, particularly because his strengths
are largely complementary to mine.

Subject: TEI Book
I am trying to convince someone that TEI might be a good tool for a small project. Ordinarily, beyond generally explaining what TEI is
and how it uses XML based technologies, I'd refer her to a book, but I can't seem to find one. So, I'd be grateful if someone could recommend a book on TEI for people who have never used it. I know the TEI documentation basically has all there is to know and
there are countless examples and even a few online tutorials that one can browse, but a book, if there is one that explains the basics and hopefully also gives some context on XML, XSLT etc would be really helpful.
In short, if there were a
TEI in a Nutshell, or equivalent that would be perfect. Is there?
