  • course pack | Publicly viewable

XML is a popular markup language with vocabularies for encoding a wide variety of digital text and other data. It is widely used in, for example, the markup of digitised manuscripts and other documents to enable you to carry out detailed research usual in accordance with the TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) guidelines. You can also transform XML into standard HTML by using the extensible stylesheet language, XSLT.

The most commonly used tool for managing the use of XML is the oXygen XML editor. Members of the University can obtain a free licence for oXygen, for research purposes only, at he University's online shop.

At the moment we don't deleiver classroom-based courses in the use of XML, however there are a number of online resources available.
