ANS Digital Publications Project
(Please direct questions to Sebastian Heath, <heath @ numismatics.org>)
The American Numismatic Society is developing an infrastructure for the digital publication of numismatic catalogs, exhibitions, articles, and other materials. As a general rule, this system will take advantage of existing standards and tools whenever possible. This means that texts will be encoded using the Extensible Markup Language (XML) and that the Text Encoding Initiative's (TEI) xml dtd's and schemas will be used where appropriate. Further information about the TEI is available at its web site. There are many good starting points for learning about xml, including www.xml.org and the much more technical World Wide Web consortium's xml site.
