TEI P5 Document Type (Framework)

The TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) document type is an international and interdisciplinary standard that enables libraries, museums, publishers, and individual scholars to represent a variety of literary and linguistic texts for online research, teaching, and preservation.

File Definition

A file is considered to be a TEI P5 document when one of the following conditions are true:

  • The document namespace is http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0.
  • The public ID of the document is -//TEI P5.

Default Document Templates

There are a variety of default TEI P5 templates available when creating new documents from templates and they can be found in: Framework Templates > TEI P5.

The default templates for TEI P5 documents are located in the [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks/tei/templates/TEI P5 folder.

Default Schema for Validation and Content Completion

The default schema that is used if one is not detected in the TEI P5 document is tei_all.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 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 P5 document type are as follows:

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

Transformation Scenarios

Oxygen XML Author plugin includes built-in transformation scenarios that allow you to transform TEI P5 documents to a variety of outputs, such as PDF, XHTML, EPUB, DOCX, and ODT. They can be found in the TEI P5 section in the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) dialog box.
