Digital scholarly editing

The science and (somewhat) art of transforming a physical literary text into a scientifically reliable and durable digital representation.

Usually takes the form of a TEI-XML document for preservational purposes and a web or off line published visualization.

For example Peter Robinson et al, Canterbury Tales Project. http://www.canterburytalesproject.org/; Peter Thomas, The nun’s priest’s tale on CD-ROM. http://www.sd-editions.com/NP/index.html
