  • One of the things that I think is missing from TEI is XLink []. A project that I called the "Critical Edition Browser" which would graphically show the connections between various recensions and copies of a text so that no one text is privileged over any other text (a classical critical edition set-up tends to do this). Basically, what I would want is two TEI encoded texts that have XLink arcs to each other in such a way as to show the lemma and stemma between the two (or more) texts. This would obviate the need for special mark-up for critical editions as it would be encoded in the XLinks between the two documents. The "browser" would then show these in such a way as to make it obvious and allow the scholar to click through and otherwise manipulate the edition on screen.

    Anyway, yeah, TEI definitely allows a greater level of flexibility in encoding a document.
