Abstract

The TEI Header plays a vital role in the documentation and interchange of TEI conformant electronic texts. Moreover, this role is becoming increasingly important as more people follow the recommendations set out in TEI P3, and libraries, archives, and electronic text centres seek to share their holdings of electronic texts. However, the fact that TEI P3 allows for flexibility in the structure and content of TEI Headers has meant that divergent practices have begun to emerge within the numerous projects and initiatives creating TEI texts. With this in mind, the Oxford Text Archive hosted a one-day colloquium of leading TEI exponents, at which invited participants were encouraged to share their views and expertise on creating TEI Headers, and work together to develop some recommendations towards good practice.
