Creating TEI Documents Based on Templates
oXygen includes TEI DTDs, XML Catalogs, XSL
stylesheets, and document templates so that you can start working with TEI documents
right away. You can edit documents with the help of the context-sensitive Content
Completion Assistant, easily validate the edited documents, and transform them into
HTML or PDF formats. We cooperate with the TEI Consortium and we are committed to
keeping the TEI support up-to-date in future oXygen releases.
Templates provide starting points to rapidly build new documents that repeat the
same basic characteristics. oXygen includes a vast set of templates for a number
of XML applications, including a set of predefined templates for TEI XML documents.
Specific TEI Actions
oXygen is able to recognize the TEI documents based either on the root
element name or namespace. When you switch to Author mode, the
editor loads both the set of CSS files and the available actions that were
associated in the TEI configuration.
The action set includes operations for emphasising text, inserting images,
lists, sections, paragraphs, and working with tables.
You can also create your own operations for inserting or deleting XML document
TEI Table Support
You can easily create tables, join or split cells, and add or remove rows.
The following is an example of a TEI table with the cursor positioned between
Column and Row Table Operations
You can select multiple rows and columns to easily copy or
move table data by using copy/paste and drag/drop operations.
Copy-and-Paste from Office Applications
Styled content can be inserted by copying content from Office applications
(Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice.org Writer, OpenOffice.org Calc) and
Web browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome), and
pasting it in the TEI editor. The styles and general layout of the copied content
(sections with headings, tables, list items, bold and italic text, hyperlinks, etc.)
are preserved as equivalent TEI XML elements by the paste operation.
You can select multiple text ranges (discontinuous
selections) or multiple elements in the Author mode for
