TEXT ENCODING FOR INFORMATION INTERCHANGE
 
A Tutorial Introduction to the Text Encoding Initiative
 
 
A workshop to be held at ACH/ALLC '95 in Santa Barbara
 
The organizers of ACH/ALLC '95 are pleased to announce a pre-conference
workshop on the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines.
 
  Title:  Text Encoding for Information Interchange:  A Tutorial
          Introduction to the Text Encoding Initiative
  Date:   10 July 1995, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  Place:  UCSB Microcomputer Laboratory
  Instructors:  C. M. Sperberg-McQueen, Lou Burnard, David Chesnutt
  Registration fee:  $50
 
This workshop will introduce the encoding scheme recommended by the Text
Encoding Initiative (TEI) in its Guidelines for Text Encoding and
Interchange.  The main focus will be on introducing the tag set defined
in the Guidelines, but the context within which the TEI Guidelines were
developed and general problems of text markup will also be addressed.
 
Topics to be covered include:
 
1. General Principles of Text Markup:  What is markup for?
    Varieties of markup; effect of markup.  What are electronic texts
    for?  Markup and interpretation.  Markup as a means of enabling
    intelligent retrieval.
2.  Basics of SGML:   What it is and isn't; the case for using it.
    Basic SGML syntax for the document instance (tags, entity
    references, comment declarations).  Examination and explication of
    simple examples.
3.  Document Analysis:  What document analysis is, and why it is an
    essential part of any e-text project.  Phases of document analysis.
    Group document analysis of a sample text.
4.  Basics of the TEI:  origins and goals of the TEI, overall
    organization of the TEI encoding scheme, basic structural notions
    of the TEI DTD and the pizza model:  the base, additional, and core
    tag sets, and how they may be extended, modified, and documented;
    group tagging of the sample document.
5.  Hands-on Session:  introduction to standard commercial or
    public-domain SGML-aware editor.
6. Putting the TEI into Practice:  types of software available for
    SGML, how the adoption of TEI encoding affects the practical work
    of an e-text project, and a review of where to go for further
    information.
 
 
The Text Encoding Initiative
 
The Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) is an international cooperative
research effort, the goal of which is to define a set of generic
Guidelines for the representation of all kinds of textual materials in
electronic form, in such a way as to enable researchers in any
discipline to interchange texts and datasets in machine readable form,
independently of the software or hardware in use, and also independently
of the particular application for which such electronic resources are
used.  The first full version of the TEI Guidelines was published in
May, 1994, after six years of development in Europe and the US.  It
takes the form of a substantial reference manual, documenting a modular
and extensible SGML document type definition (DTD), which can be used to
describe electronic encodings of all kinds of texts, of all times and in
all languages.  It is sometimes said that the Standard Generalized
Markup Language (SGML:  ISO 8879) provides only the syntax for  text
markup; the TEI aims to provide a semantics.
 
Computer-aided research now crosses many political, linguistics,
temporal, and disciplinary boundaries;  the TEI Guidelines have been
designed to be applied to texts in any language, from any period, in
any genre, encoded for research of any kind.  As far as possible, the
Guidelines eschew controversy; where consensus has not been
established, only very general recommendations are made.  The object is
to help the researcher make his or her position explicit, not to
dictate what that position should be.
 
Viewed as a standard, the TEI scheme attempts to occupy the middle
ground.  It offers neither a single all-embracing encoding scheme,
solving all problems once for all, nor an unstructured collection of
tag sets.  Rather it offers an extensible framework containing a common
core of features, a choice of frameworks or bases, and a wide variety
of optional additions for specific application areas.  Somewhat
light-heartedly, we refer to this as the Chicago Pizza model (in which
the customer chooses a particular base -- say deep dish or whole crust
-- and adds the toppings of his or her choice), by contrast with both
the Chinese menu or laissez-faire approach (which allows for any
combinations of dishes, even the ridiculous) and the set meal approach,
in which you must have the entire menu.
 
 
Materials and Presenters
 
All participants will be provided with a printed introductory summary
guide to the TEI scheme, and supporting materials on PC disks, including
full versions of the TEI DTDs, public domain SGML software and sample
TEI texts.  Subject to availability, participants may be able to acquire
the CD-ROM of the TEI Guidelines at a discounted price.
 
The tutorial will be taught by three instructors:  C. M.
Sperberg-McQueen (Computer Center, University of Illinois at Chicago),
Lou Burnard (Oxford University Computing Services), and David Chesnutt
(Dept. of History, University of South Carolina).
