TEI by Example offers a series of freely available online tutorials walking individuals through the different stages in marking up a document in TEI (Text Encoding Initiative). Besides a general introduction to text encoding, step-by-step tutorial modules provide example-based introductions to eight different aspects of electronic text markup for the humanities. Each tutorial module is accompanied with a dedicated examples section, illustrating actual TEI encoding practice with real-life examples. The theory of the tutorial modules can be tested in interactive tests and exercises.

Oscar Wilde: The Importance of Being Earnest
This example contains the TEI header for an electronic edition of Oscar Wilde’s
The Importance of Being Earnest, encoded and made available by Corpus of Electronic Texts (CELT), a project of University College, Cork.
This is an excellent TEI header example, featuring quality descriptions of the electronic text (fileDesc), its relation to the source text (encodingDesc), the context in which it came about (profileDesc), and a revision history (revisionDesc).
An outstanding feature of this example is the level of detail for the bibliographic description of the source text, in sourceDesc. It contais a complete bibliography, in three sections: select editions, select bibliography, and the edition used in the digital edition. The former two categories consist of bibliographic lists, with a listBibl element grouping the separate bibl elements. The actual edition used for the electronic text is described in detail with a biblStruct element.
