Abstract

The Humanities Computing (HC) community has had a long and fruitful association with SGML and XML through the work of TEI. Indeed, the TEI has greatly deepened our understanding of the significance of markup of digital materials. With certain qualifications, the OHCO model that XML and TEI embody has largely been shown to meet the needs document-oriented markup tasks. The HC's relationship with the relational database, on the other hand, does not appear to have been so positive. Part of the reason for this arises from the nature of many HC projects, which are focused on preparation of digital editions of source texts and are much better served by SGML/XML and the TEI.
