1) 'In the Header, but Where?' by Syd Bauman (Women Writers' Project) and Dot Porter. Problems with TEI Guidelines? One problem: encoder is instructed to put something in the header, but where? In the guidelines (1500 pages document), they located the instances where 'header' was mentioned, where they are clear and precise and where they need work (too ambiguious). The TEI-C needs an editorial document to guide the encoding of new sections and chapters--quite possibly in the ODD for the TEI Guidelines.
2) 'A Tool Suite for Automated TEI Encoding' by Laura Mandell, Holly Connor, Gerald Gannod. Established CHAT(Collaboratory for Humanities, Art and Technology) at Miami University in Ohio. Goal: create tools to enhance the end-user experience without the end-user needing to learn code. Existing Tools: Standalone Desktop applications--Oxygen, X-Metal, etc. Some examples from CHAT were shown. Last, it is noted that Word 2007 has many XML features that can be used, better than Open Office. Blog: http://miamichat.wordpress.com/
