Examples for Module 0: Introduction

1. Introduction

Contrary to the other examples sections, this examples section of the introductory TBE tutorial will illustrate different types of encoding for one sample text. These markup samples will range from procedural to descriptive markup languages, in a variety of formats (text, SGML, XML). Before starting, have a look at the following document:
In this short piece of prose, following text structures can be distinguished:
  • a heading
  • a paragraph
  • a footnote
Apart from these structures, some textual phenomena can be distinguished:
  • a title (Die Leiden des jungen Werther)
  • emphasised text (exceptionally)
  • a term (Weltschmertz)
  • a name (Goethe)
Let's have a look how different encoding flavours treat these phenomena.
