Digital Editions, Start to Finish: This class teaches faculty, staff, and students how to create a digital edition, from start to finish. Attendees will bring documents of all types (prose, poetry, drama, letters, and records), in plain text, Word, or some other word-processing format, and will learn how to encode them using guidelines from the Text Encoding Initiative (http://www.tei-c.org/), and then will learn how to transform these texts using eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLTs) into web pages for online display of their digital editions. No prior coding skills are required: we begin by explaining what all these codes are and why they are used, as well as teaching them to novices.
