Digital Editions, Start to Finish: This class teaches faculty, staff,
and students how to create a digital edition, from start to finish.
Attendees will bring documents of all types (prose, poetry, drama,
letters, and records), in plain text, Word, or some other
word-processing format, and will learn how to encode them using
guidelines from the Text Encoding Initiative (http://www.tei-c.org), and
then will learn how to transform these texts using eXtensible Stylesheet
Language Transformations (XSLTs) into web pages for online display of
their digital editions.  No prior coding skills are required: we begin
by explaining what all these codes are and why they are used, as well as
teaching them to novices.  Two weeks' classes will be spent workshopping
on students own digital editions, with plenty of time for questions and
help from the webinar conveners.

Subjects addressed include TEI-encoding of Prose, Letters, Novels,
Poetry, Drama, and Records), TEI Schemas, Personographies, Taxonomies,
semantic markup, CSS (Cascading Stylesheets), XSLT transforms into HTML
for web display, into plain text for searching, and into  XML (to change
coding decisions or generate multiple documents from one.
