Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) is pleased
to offer XML/XSLT workshops as a pre-conference activity of the 2004
Joint International Conference of the Association for Literary and
Linguistic Computing and the Association for Computers and the
Humanities.

The workshops are aimed at people in the humanities, libraries,
museums, and archives who wish to learn how to create digital archives
using eXtensible Markup Language (XML), and its sister technology,
eXtensible stylesheet language (XSLT) used for transforming XML
documents to HTML, PDF, or other XML documents.

The first day of the workshop will introduce students to the theory
and practice of text encoding using eXtensible Markup Language
(XML). We will be focusing on encoding through the scheme most
humanities projects utilize, the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), one
of the oldest and most robust text encoding schemes available. The
second workshop (one and one half days) will introduce students to the
practicalities of transforming XML documents through eXtensible
Stylesheet Language (XSLT).

Students may register separately for Introduction to XML and the TEI
(9 June), or the Introduction to XSLT (10-11 June). There are a
limited number of student discounts available on a
first-come-first-served basis. Please see the registration form for
more details. Early registration is advised as there are limited
places available.
