The Text Encoding Initiative has a large tagset, which would be overwhelming for undergraduate students (or any encoding project for that matter) to navigate. So as with most encoding projects, we’ve chosen a subset of tags, or elements, to use. The Text Encoding Initiative uses XML files called ODD (One Document Does it all) to help with this. An ODD defines the set of elements from the TEI that will be used in a particular encoding project, and the ODD files are then used to generate Schemas.
Schemas are an XML standard which define the grammar of an XML file. They help students know which tags they should be using and where they are allowed in an XML file.
The project started by using and then adapting the ODD and schemas from the Map of Early Modern London.
- This is the ODD that the project is currently using.
- This is the Schema that the project is currently using.
- And this is the template file that students are given at the beginning of an encoding project.
Each were developed by Scott Hamlin, who adapted them from the Map of Early Modern London’s project files.
