Re: Question on declaring ISOcat values in ODD (Linguistic Dictionary)

Hi Martin,

Let's forget the targetDatcat, it's been a while.

The datcat attributes generalise beyond FSR; actually, as far as I
recall, there was never a time where they would be used exclusively for
FSR; it's simply that feature structures provide an incredibly good
illustration of the usefulness of datcat :-).

Pieces of the datcat story can be traced here:

https://sourceforge.net/p/tei/feature-requests/330/

In your example, the  <at> uri refers to the target of <equiv>, exactly to
prevent the use of datcat here, because it would be misleading -- both
of us participated in that discussion, back then ;-). (I think that we
might have considered something like targetDatcat at one point, and the
memory just stuck in my brain while  <at> uri persevered...).

> <equiv name="orthography" uri="http://www.isocat.org/datcat/DC-394"/>

 <at> datcat provides alignment with a feature (understood in abstract model
terms), while  <at> valueDatcat privides alignment for a value of that
feature. In the TEI, this can be serialized as, e.g.:

<f name="part of speech" fVal="noun" />

but also as

<pos>noun</pos>

Manuscripts of the Vatican Library

Hi all,

I got to this page recently:
https://www.vatlib.it/home.php?ling=eng&res=1920x1080

I was wondering if TEI is used in any way for this, if not, I think it 
should be used, right?

Best Regards,
George

Question on declaring ISOcat values in ODD (Linguistic Dictionary)

Hi,

I'm wondering if any linguistically oriented TEI people of with knowledge of/experience with using ISOcat and ODD could tell me if I am using the 'equiv' element correctly..

Below is an example of my 'elementSpec' in the ODD, I am looking to declare that the TEI element 'orth' is equivalent to the ISOcat value 'orthography' and whose PID is the value in the <at> uri:

    <elementSpec module="dictionaries" ident="orth">
     <equiv name="orthography" uri="http://www.isocat.org/datcat/DC-394"/>
     <desc>The Mixtec working orthography is the orthographic system adhered to in this corpus and it corresponds to that used in the publications by SIL Mexico which are based on the recommendations by <orgName xml:lang="mix">Ve'e Tu'un Savi</orgName> (House of the Mixtec language) for a unified orthographical system for all varieties of the Mixtec language. The value of the attribute <at> <att>uri</att> is that defined in the ISOcat registry and pertains to a non-language specific orthographic system.</desc>
    </elementSpec>


Any comments, advice would be much appreciated!
 Thanks in advance,

Jack

html from TEI, technical question about marginal notes

if this isn’t your area of interest, stop reading now….

I want some ideas about rendering marginal notes in HTML. 

EEBO TCP has _many_ examples of very complex structured structured notes with
paragraphs, lists, tables etc within them. So naturally I expect to make the
<note> into a <div> with CSS properties to make it float left or right. Fine so far.
But the <note> in the TEI XML occurs inside (shall we say) a <hi> element
inside a <p>, which I would naturally be rendering as a <span>. but a <div>
inside a <span> is not allowed in the tiny brain of HTML, because it doesn’t realize
its being floated off.

So what’s a boy to do?

  a) forget about HTML validity and let the browsers just do it. problem: epub checking fails,
	and its possible some epub renderers will therefore give up

  b) make everything, everywhere, be a <div> and sort it out with display-style in CSS

  c) make everything, everywhere, be a <span> and sort it out with display-style in CSS

  d) use HTML5 <aside>, but no thats a flow-level element too

  e) move the <div> outside the <span>, up enough levels until its valid. but that mean it loses context

  f) split the <span (and any ancestor <span>) in two, insert the <div>, and restart the <span>

  g) scream and shout and kick

The default is g). I am inclining to have to put in the work to support f), but it’s not going to be fun.

Does anyone have any advice? (“use tables for layout” doesn’t actually help much, to be honest)

Pretty Print <lb/> in Oxygen

Dear TEI-list,

Oxygen offers a number of nice options to configure its pretty print function. - TEI encoded transcriptions usually contain <lb/>s and for correction purposes it makes sense to have them at the beginning of each line. So far as I see, there is no Oxygen option to force this behavior or am I missing something?

I took some workarounds into consideration, e.g. to expand <lb/> to <lb></lb> which forces line breaks while pretty printing or to write an XSLT to do the job, but this does not seem that smart to me. How do you deal with <lb/>?

All the best,
Ute

TEI Members' Meeting and Conference 2015: Lyon!

Dear TEi Community,

It is my greatest pleasure to announce you that the next TEI Members Meeting and Conference will be held in
beautiful Lyon, in France. The Meeting will be organised by an agglomerate fo research centres and
institutions, and in particular by the CIHAM (Histoire, Archéologie, Littératures des Mondes
Chrétiens et Musumans Médiévaux) and HISoMA (Histoire et Sources des Mondes Antiques). The chairs of
the local committee are Marjorie Burghart (recently elected to the Board) and Emmanuelle Morlock.

Please save the dates: the conference, including workshops and SIGs meeting will be held between the 26th
to the 31st of October 2015.

For those interested in visiting Lyon, this large university city enshrined between two rivers, rich of
about 2 millions dwellers and ca. 125,000 students, has a lot to offer. The Tourism Office website(1) will
give you more information, but we can mention that this city still bears trace of its long history. A
well-preserved gallo-roman amphitheatre is flanked by a large museum of Gallo-Roman history and
archaeology. Besides the Museum of Fine Arts, local museums include the Museum of Fabrics (bearing
testimony of the history of Lyon as the capital of silk weaving), or the museum of printing (Lyon used to be a
major centre for printing during the Renaissance era). The new ‘Musée des Confluences’(2) offers a
visually stunning architecture. Located where the Rhône and Saône rivers meet, it will be housing a
museum at the confluence of scientific, technical and anthropological knowledge. The old town (UNESCO
World Heritage site), with its medieval cathedral, is mostly Renaissance and is sometimes described as
italianate. The local cuisine, with its picturesque "bouchon" restaurants(3), is world-famous

The call for paper will be issued early next year.

Best and see you _all_ in Lyon!
Elena

Elections results

Dear TEI Community,

It is my greatest pleasure to announce to you the results of the TEI elections 2014. 
In the end 44% of the voters for the technical council did cast a vote and 52% of the Board's electors did the same. All in all it was not a bad turnaround, but we can certainly do better. We were very privileged this year (as every year, if I may) to have an outstanding line up of candidates, many for the very first time.

For the TEI Board of Directors the people that have been elected for a 2 years term are:

Michelle Dalmau
Marjorie Burghart 
Martin Mueller

The person that has been elected for one year term is

Pip Willcox

Congratulations to all the elected people and the warmest thank you to the people that who also had accepted to stand for elections: Elena González-Blanco, Kyionory Nagasaki and Glen Worthey.
Our gratitude for their long and outstanding service goes also to the outgoing members of the Board: Lou Burnard, John Walsh, Arianna Ciula and Glen Worthey.

For the TEI Technical Council the people that have been elected for a 2 years term are:

Hugh Cayless 
Lou Burnard 
Raffaele Viglianti 
Stefan Majewski 
Syd Bauman

Congratulations to all the elected people and the warmest thank you to the people that who also had accepted to stand for elections: Stefan Dumont, Bertrand Gaiffe, Brian L. Pytlik Zillig and Jeffrey Witt.
Our gratitude for their long and outstanding service goes also to the outgoing members of the Council: Elli Milonas and Sebastian Rahz.

We hope that the people that have not been elected will consider to put their name forward again next time. 
At the Members Meeting we noted how women are underrepresented within the Technical Council: we would like seriously appeal to all women in the list to consider to put forward their name for next year.

Once again, congratulations and a thank to all the people that have accepted to help the TEI to get bigger and better.
Best
Elena
