Using XML to generate research tools for Wittgenstein scholars by collaborative groupwork


  This website contains the outcomes and developmental history of an international research project using XML. A sample file from the literary estate of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, known as MS101, containing philosophical and personal remarks from September 1914, was converted to XML with reference to the TEI Guidelines. A series of XSL stylesheets were prepared for output in XHTML and PDF. Particular attention was given to how MS101 could be hyperlinked to external resources, and how the complexity of these links could be controlled and filtered according to the interests of the user. The final outcomes illustrate how output files can be generated dynamically on demand according to user preferences. The project is made possible through an agreement with the Wittgenstein Trustees, Oxford University Press and Trinity College Library which we gratefully acknowledge.
