Markup Technology and Textual Scholarship

(p.157) 5. Markup Technology and Textual Scholarship
Digital Critical Editions

Claus Huitfeldt

University of Illinois Press

This chapter describes how digital critical edition supposes a mastery of markup systems, providing an overview in the form of an inventory of standards, and of markup, presentation, and archiving techniques. It discusses the state of the art while focusing on key architectures and techniques considered as the basis of digital critical edition. The chapter introduces some aspects of markup technology that are particularly relevant to textual scholarship, such as the Extensible Markup Language (XML) and the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), and considers some of their limitations, possibilities, and future potential. Since there is no need to be conversant with all aspects and details of the markup technology, most of what is covered here is of a general nature, albeit focusing on issues assumed to be of particular relevance for textual scholarship.

Keywords:   markup technology, digital critical edition, archiving techniques, Extensible Markup Language, Text Encoding Initiative, textual scholarship
