Reading the list for half a year or so I noted that it is most
messages are concerned with linguistic and literary problems of
TEI application which, judging by the ratio of Daniel Greenstein's
presentation to the remaining ones described in the Report, reflects
the interest (or rather lack of it) in TEI among historians. So I dare
ask two questions:
1. Is there anyone actually working with historical sources using
feature structures or otherwise encoding semantic networks
to show interconnections relevant to historical rather than
2. Are there any examples available for stealing?
Taking the opportunity, I will ask two more questions:
3. Has the special issue of Computing and the Humanities on TEI
(with the article by Lou Burnard and Daniel Greenstein 'Speaking
with one voice') been published yet? Who is the present publisher
(apparently it has changed recently)?
4. Is WordPerfect 6.1 SGML already available? I have seen talk about
it form some time but people at Novell-Poland say it is not released yet.
Thanks for your help!
