TEXT ENCODING INITIATIVE: VERSE WORK GROUP
REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
The Text Encoding Initiative has set up a number of Work Groups to
recommend SGML mark-up systems, for inclusion in the TEI Guidelines as an
international standard. The Verse Work Group comprises Elaine Brennan,
David Chisolm, Willard McCarty, and myself as Chair.
We therefore warmly invite colleagues who have encoded verse texts in any
language please to send us information about the mark-up systems they have
used. It will be very helpful (not to say essential) to us to know as much
as possible both about the kinds of textual feature that have been tagged,
and about the tagging language employed. We would like to base our
recommendations as much as possible on what colleagues in the field have
actually done and what they have felt to be important.
Any other relevant comments or information would be most welcome.
Please send material either by e-mail to
surface mail to me at
