DiMeMa, Inc., the developers of CONTENTdm, which is a popular digital 
collection management system, has shown an interest in supporting 
documents encoded in TEI. They asked me to send them some examples of 
TEI-encoded documents for their developers to examine.

The only TEI-encoded documents I have to send them from my own 
collection are some manuscript letters and some journal articles. I 
am not very experienced in TEI encoding and hesitate to send them my own files.

I'd really like to send them a link to a more "official" set of 
TEI-encoded pages that can demonstrate to DiMeMa the wide range of 
document types that can be encoded in TEI and that have been encoded 
by experienced users of the TEI.

Can anyone point me to such a page or Web site?

If not, I guess I could just send them links to guidelines such as 
the following:

http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/standards/tei/uvatei.html

or, point them to pages from the TEI P4 guidelines that discuss 
various kinds of documents:
http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/DS.html (default structure)
http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/PR.html (prose)
http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/VE.html (verse)
http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/DR.html (drama)
http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/TS.html (speech)
http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/DI.html (dictionaries)
http://www.tei-c.org/P4X/TE.html (terminological databases)

FYI: DiMema's Home page: http://www.dimema.com/index.html

Thank you,
