TEI ODD Document Type (Framework)

The TEI ODD (Text Encoding Initiative - One Document Does it all) document type is a TEI XML-conformant specification format that allows you to create a custom TEI P5 schema in a literate programming fashion. A system of XSLT stylesheets called Roma was created by the TEI Consortium for manipulating the ODD files.

File Definition

A file is considered to be a TEI ODD document when the following conditions are true:

  • The file extension is .odd.
  • The document namespace is http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0.

Default Document Templates

There is a default TEI ODD document template available when creating new documents from templates and they can be found in: Framework Templates > TEI ODD.

The default template is located in the [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks/tei/templates/TEI ODD folder.

Default Schema for Validation and Content Completion

The default schema that is used if one is not detected in the TEI ODD document is tei_odds.rng and it is stored in [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks/tei/xml/tei/custom/schema/relaxng/.

Default CSS

The default CSS files used for rendering TEI ODD content in Author mode are stored in [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks/tei/xml/tei/css/.

By default, these default CSS files are merged with any that are specified in the document. For more information, see Configuring and Managing Multiple CSS Styles.

Default XML Catalogs

The default XML Catalogs for the TEI ODD document type are as follows:

  • [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks/tei/xml/tei/custom/schema/catalog.xml
  • [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks/tei/xml/tei/schema/catalog.xml

Transformation Scenarios

Oxygen XML Author includes built-in transformation scenarios that allow you to transform TEI ODD documents to a variety of outputs, such as PDF, XHTML, EPUB, DOCX, ODT, RNG, DTD, and XML Schema. They can be found in the TEI ODD section in the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) dialog box.
