I have a collection of 800+ documents which have been marked up in TEI-Lite. Theyíre mostly relatively small newspaper articles, just a few paragraphs. The collection could eventually expand into the thousands.
We need to classify or categorize the documents. Iím pretty new to TEI, so Iím not sure what the best way is.
My first thought is to create a new categories.xml document which contains a classDecl with several taxonomies (one for location, one for subject matter, etc) each with their own set of categories.
I think I can link back to the categories with the catRef element, but the examples in the guidelines all show the categories and content in the same XML document.
Can I set up a single categories.xml document, and link to it in the catRef element? What syntax would I use?
