In recent years it has been argued that when XML encodings become complex, DOM trees are no longer adequate for query processing. Alternative representations of XML documents, such as multi-colored trees [7] have been proposed as a replacement for DOM trees for complex markup. In this paper we consider the use of Generalized Ordered-Descendant Directed(More)
Image-based electronic editions enable researchers to view and study in an electronic environ­ ment historical manuscript images intricately linked to edition, transcript, glossary and apparatus files. Building image-based electronic editions poses a twofold chal­ lenge. For humanities scholars, it is important to be able to use image and text to(More)
Concurrent markup hierarchies appear often in document-centric XML documents, as a result of different XML elements having overlapping scopes. They require significantly different approach to management and maintenance. Management of XML documents composed of concurrent markup has been mostly studied by the document processing community and has attracted(More)
The process of creation of document-centric XML documents often starts with a prepared textual content, into which the editor introduces markup. In such situations, intermediate XML is almost never valid with respect to the DTD/Schema used for the encoding. At the same time, it is important to ensure that at each moment of time, the editor is working with(More)
We demonstrate the Edition Production Technology (EPT), an integrated development environment for building Image-based Electronic Editions (IBEE). EPT is developed in Java on top of Eclipse platform and benefits from the openness of Eclipse's plugin architecture and its portability (currently EPT runs on Windows XP, Linux, and Mac OS X). EPT provides(More)
Management of multihierarchical XML encodings has attracted attention of a number of researchers both in databases [8] and in humanities[10]. Encoding documents using multiple hierarchies can yield overlapping markup. Previously proposed solutions to management of document-centric XML with overlapping markup rely on the XML expertise of humans and their(More)
To properly encode properties of textual documents using XML, mul­ tiple markup hierarchies must be used, often leading to conflicting markup in encodings. Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines[1] recognize this problem and suggest a number of ways to incorporate multiple hierarchies in a single well-formed XML document. In this paper, we present a(More)
