Tagging & Transcription Guidelines

The Newton Project’s Transcription and Tagging Guidelines are based on the recommendations of the Text Encoding Initiative. The Newton Guidelines were given two major overhauls in the course of 2007-8, first to bring them completely into line with the P4 version of the TEI recommendations, and then to upgrade them to the P5 version which was released in 2008. The current Newton Guidelines are available for viewing as an Adobe Acrobat Reader PDF file via the link below. A good knowledge of XML terminology is necessary to understand the Guidelines. Visitors wanting a less detailed and technical summary can find one in the Brief Guide to our Editorial Policies.
