The recent article by Wilhelm Ott referred to by Wesley Raabe is
'Strategies and Tools for textual Scholarship: the Tübingen System of
Text Processing Programs (TUSTEP)' in: Literary and Linguistic
Computing, 15/1 (2000): 93-108.

Modularity, professionality, portability, and integration are the key
features of the TUebingen system for TExt Processing programs (TUSTEP),
a professional toolbox for those academic fields where texts are the
object of research. Its potential is illustrated by two examples: (i)
typesetting a TEI-lite encoded text, using the TEI tags as formatting
instructions; (ii) preparing a  critical edition, starting from
automatic collation, then semi-automatically selecting the substantial'
variants from the collation results, transforming them into a critical
apparatus, and publishing the edition both in print and electronically.
