- The Mailing-List of the Charters Encoding Initiative -
The main purpose by CEI-L is to discuss the digitization of medieval
charters with XML. It was established by a working group in spring 2004.
With this list the working group offers a forum for everybody trying to
scan, encode, markup, structure informations related to medieval legal
documents. The working group develops a proposal for a standard to do this
with XML. Therefore any contribution on special diplomatic phenomena not
covered by the existing proposal
inconsistencies, semantic ambiguities are likewise welcome as
announcements of projects working with the proposal, practical issues in
planning such a project, technical question on presentation of the results
of a project, looking for specific document collection propably encode
with the proposal etc.
