It has not been much advertised or discussed, but one of the regular output formats
of the TEI Guidelines is .mobi, for Kindle (http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/Guidelines.mobi).
This is generated from the epub version (http://www.tei-c.org/release/doc/tei-p5-doc/en/Guidelines.epub)
using Amazon's kindlegen.
I am wondering whether anyone has seriously tried to use the Guidelines
on a Kindle, either old style e-ink or on new Fire tablet? Does anyone
feel able to comment on the useability, and/or make recommendations for
how it could be improved? if, for example, having a different CSS stylesheet
would make it noticeably better, it would be fairly easy to maintain that.
It strikes me as a possible short student or group project, to investigate
the Kindle and/or ePub versions of the Guidelines, and tell us how to take
If anyone has tried the ebook Guidelines on other systems, like Nook or Kobo,
a report on those experiences would be interesting too. I have to confess
that I have only checked them on an iPad, using Apple's iBook reader.
