Live long and prosper! Lessons from the TEI

5. Is the TEI still relevant?

  • With XML everyone can create their own markup system and still share data!
  • In the Semantic Web, XML systems will all understand each other's data!

  • historical data marked up with a Historical Markup Language
  • linguistic data marked up with a Linguistic Markup Language
  • metadata marked up with a Metadata Markup Language
how will we integrate resources or ask interesting questions?

Haven't we been here before?
