Live long and prosper! Lessons from the TEI

13. Three important things about TEI P5

  1. Being a good digital citizen:
    • Support for multiple schema languages and namespaces
    • Reliance on XML, and hence on Unicode
    • Validation of attributes and datatyping
    • Use of W3C pointers and paths
  2. Making it flexible:
    • ODD: a single specification language for developers, users, and teachers, integrating schema and documentation;
    • Verifiable conformance
  3. Old annoyances removed and some new topics added
