Subject

Description

The Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), an international collaboration aimed at producing a common encoding scheme for complex texts, examines the requirement for generality versus the requirement to handle specialized text types. The text also discusses how documents and users tax the limits of fixed schemes requiring flexible extensible encoding to support research and to facilitate the reuse of texts.
