Welcome to the TEI by Example project!

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 practise with real-life examples. The theory of the tutorial modules can be tested in interactive tests and exercises. The tutorial materials are contextualised with a tools section, providing both an annotated overview of state-of-the-art XML encoding technology, and a TBE validator application, allowing you to test your TEI encoding as you type! For a full overview, see the section below, or the drop-down menu above.

The TBE project team would be delighted to hear your feedback, comments, suggestions, but most of all: examples! If you happen to have any text samples that you want to share under a Creative Commons Share Alike license, please do get in touch at teibyexample@ed.ac.uk.
