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.
Bibliographic and general references
Most encoders of prose want to encode more than just the document structure. Dates, names, places, events, organisations, titles of books, movies, and plays, for instance, frequently appear in prose and may need to be encoded. The TEI Guidelines propose specific elements for all these features. A separate TEI by Example tutorial on these elements and their use can be found in
