Version 1.1 (5 May 2004)

Changes in version 1.1

The HTML version can be read by all recent browsers. Some of the chapters are fairly long and contain many images and may therefore be slow to open. For this reason, users may wish to download a zip archive of the whole handbook (1.4 MB). When installed, the handbook can be accessed locally and pages will be displayed more quickly.

Version 2

We expect version 2.0 to be published in the beginning of 2006. This version will be compatible with TEI P5.

The whole handbook is being revised for the time being. Several chapters are already available in a pre-release version (e.g. ch. 2, 7 and 8). Please note that these chapters can be changed without prior notice until the 2nd version of the handbook is published.

Version 2.0 beta (work in progress)
