SLIS faculty member John Walsh recently announced the release of TEI Boilerplate 1.0, a “lightweight solution for publishing styled TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) P5 content directly in modern browsers.”
Walsh completed the project with the assistance of SLIS master degree students Grant Simpson, Saeed Moeddeli, and Adam Hochstetter. Much of the work was done in the Digital Culture Lab space at SLIS - which Walsh manages.
Walsh posted the announcement on his blog - (an excerpt is included here).
Walsh also sent the "announcement to many digital humanities and digital library mailing lists, on Twitter, Facebook, and some other blogs."
We released it and started announcing it the evening on Monday the 23rd, and since then, in only two days, we've had over 100 downloads of the software, over 700 visitors to the Web site, and dozens of tweets about it, all positive. Also lots of positive comments on Facebook and on the TEI-L mailing list.
