Hello TEI-in-libraries enthusiasts,
You'll recall that the *Best Practices for TEI in Libraries* was
published in October 2011:
While aimed at TEI users in libraries, those not in libraries have often
found it provides a useful approach to text encoding.
Rather than allowing this document to persist in isolation from the TEI
Guidelines, the TEI Technical Council decided to incorporate specific
best practices from this document into the main TEI Guidelines. Since
not every best practice in this document will be viewed by the whole
Council as meriting inclusion in the Guidelines, the Council decided to
sort this out by having individual tickets created in SourceForge. The
Best Practices document is long, so there's a lot of work to do.
If you have favorite parts of this document which you think are
applicable to all TEI users and not adequately addressed in the full TEI
Guidelines, please help me out with this work by noting the idea on this
Better yet, also volunteer to create a SourceForge ticket, create one,
and add the link on this page. Not only will this keep us from
submitting duplicate requests but it also makes it easy for us to
comment on each others' tickets and move the discussion forward.
You can see that I created one back in August, and it was discussed by
the Council in September, with implementation of 3 out of 4 points pending.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
