This workshop will provide an overview of XML basics, with a special emphasis on TEI markup and hands-on exercises. The workshop will also introduce the basics of XPath, illustrating its importance as a query language that can be utilized during the encoding process.
The agenda is divided into the following sections:
- A brief overview of markup languages
- Fundamentals of XML
- Basics of XPath
- Time for discussion and/or a demonstration of more advanced topics
The workshop will take place in Bass Library, L06.
No prior encoding experience is required. Participants will be required, however, to use the oXygen XML editor during the workshop. You will either need to bring a laptop with the latest version of oXygen pre-installed, or you will need to install oXygen on your desktop in the computer lab at the beginning of the workshop (if you go this route, please arrive early to the workshop). A 30-day free trial is available on the oXygen website: https://www.oxygenxml.com/xml_editor/register.html#get_trial
