This week’s assignment was difficult. You had to take a document and translate it into a piece of code. For this week’s blog post, I want you to describe, in plain language, your process of translating your document.
- First, describe what your document is.
- Then describe the document’s structure. What are its component parts and how are they divided up.
- Then describe how you represented that structure using XML tags.
- Then describe any unique or particularly unusual features of your document, such as handwriting, erasures, pictures, tables, the inclusion of names/dates/places to be tagged, etc.
- Then describe the TEI elements and attributes that you used to represent those features.
To earn full credit, your post should be clearly written and demonstrate a close reading of your document, an understanding of the basics of text markup, and a thoughtfulness about how to best represent your document with your markup.
Note: if you want to include excerpts of your XML in your blog post, create a custom HTML block in your post:
Then put your XML in between an open and close <xmp> tag, so that WordPress does not think try to convert the XML. Here is an example from my markup:
