Using the basic TEI structural elements

1. TEI Infrastructure

  • The TEI encoding scheme consists of a number of modules
  • These declare XML elements and their attributes
  • An element's declaration assigns it to one (or more) model classes
  • Another part declares its possible content and attributes with reference to these classes
  • This indirection allows strength and flexibility
  • It makes it easy to add/exclude new elements by referencing existing classes
