There was an interesting workshop yesterday at Verona EKDOSIS ON THE NET How do/can old frames endure/resist the new displaying. I presented a description of how far the Ecdosis editing tools have progressed, via Skype. Immediately before me another speaker presented a theoretical approach based on standard TEI-XML encoding, but my presentation was not polemical: it only sought to explain the tools and the reason for our different approach. The audience reaction, however, was surprising. The first question was Why do we have to learn TEI?, and other comments during the discussion that followed seemed to indicate that many agreed with me that what we need are graphical interface tools for the digital edition, not complex markup solutions.
