Introduction by Volunteer Editor (Florian Cafiero): This blog post presents “TEI Simple”, a framework developed to ensure a simpler interaction between TEI and other formats, and to enable easier customization.
TEI Simple Processing Model (SPM) is a framework that facilitates conversion of TEI (or actually any XML-encoded) texts into a range of output formats like html (obviously), pdf and ePub. SPM allows the editor to embed processing instructions into TEI ODD schemas and Simple Processing Engine performs the actual conversion of the file according to the rules stated in the ODD. TEI Simple project provides the default rules for processing but whenever they don’t fit the editorial decisions of particular edition they can be easily overridden in ODD customization.
