Text Encoding Initiative (TEI)

The Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) is an encoding language intended to support detailed encoding of complex documents and is used extensively by a number of different Digital Humanities (DH) projects. As an encoding language, it is used to describe both the physical characteristics of a text (line breaks, pagination, special characters, etc.), classify subjects, tag people, places, and events, and to add commentary.
