Hi Robert,

The first that comes to mind is the People of the Founding Era project (http://pfe.rotunda.upress.virginia.edu/). Several documentary editing papers projects have shared TEI content, from which the annotations are mined for identifications and biographies of interest, which then are used as a part of the content for this digital edition that takes a prosopographical approach. I think, given that the papers project sharing TEI data are published digitally in their own right, this meets your criteria. Details are on the Intro page: http://pfe.rotunda.upress.virginia.edu/content/intro.

Dear all,
when discussing TEI-related stuff, and especially when praising the many virtues and advantages of TEI XML encoding, one of my favorite arguments is that not only TEI is a great format when aiming for long-term data preservation, but it also allows data interchange among different projects (that's one of the possible meanings of the 'I' in TEI, right?).

A colleague and friend of mine who has a somewhat different opinion of TEI encoding, recently wrote an article where he stated that this advantage is just a theoretical one, because there are *no* projects actually sharing TEI data originating from somewhere else.

I was going to fire up a mail to answer this claim, when I realized that I couldn't think, on the top of my head, of one or more projects doing exactly that: can you help me finding examples? and, if such interchange is less than expected/desirable, what could be the reason? projects jealously keeping all XML data private, or making those available with a very restrictive license?

Thank you in advance,
