The Charters Encoding Initiative continues the work on the issue of the workshop.

Vorstellung der Tagung auf deutsch


In cooperation with the German Committee for editing the Regesta Imperii e.V. (section Akademie der Wissenschaften Mainz) and the Archivschule Marburg the chair for Historical Auxiliary Disciplines prepares a workshop that intends to supply a want of historians, historical linguists, archivists and librarians for transfering scholarly standards of editing medieval documents and charters into the digital world. The organizers consider XML as the best solution for this purpose. Therefore the workshop will discuss a draft basing on existing DTDs (TEI, Codice diplomatico della Lombardia Medievale, Annegret Fiebig: Urkundentext 2000 etc.). The intention is to come to a joint proposal of leading european scholars working with XML-technologies for editing medieval documents to be subsequently enhanced by the scholarly community.

Mo 14-18 h and Tu 9-13 h: Closed Session, Discussion of a draft of a DTD

Issues to be possibly adressed:

  • Elements
    • Wich phenomena has to be described?
    • How to do that with XML most opportunely?
  • Structure
    • How to group and organize the elements?
    • A DTD for charters between TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) and EAD (Encoded Archival Description): Which elements could be adopted? Could a DTD for charters be integrated in the existing DTDs?
  • Research Interests
    • Particular requirements for linguistic, historical, diplomatic, archival use.
    • Characters and symbols: Unicode or descriptive encoding?
  • Resolution
    Finally we will resolve a common draft and further issues to be discussed.

Tu 14-15 h: Public Presentation of the Results
