A collection of XSLT 2.0 style sheets to transform a document encoded in according to the TEILite DTD to HTML. They have been specifically developed to create a monolithic (single) HTML document for posting on Project Gutenberg, but are also capable of generating ePub files from the same source with a similar look and feel. In line with the type of material Project Gutenberg deals with, these style sheets are designed to deal with encoded pre-existing works, rather than works created digitally from scratch.
The transformation supports the following elements as present in TEI:
- Plain Text and text styles
- Title Pages
- Tables of contents
- Poetry and Plays
- Cover images
Furthermore, the script can generate
- Tables of Contents.
- Lists of Corrections.
- Metadata as used in ePub
Tei2Html includes localisation support for English, Dutch, and to a lesser extend German, French, Spanish, Tagalog and Cebuano.
Note, that these scripts partly depend on the use of rend attributes and other TEI conventions. It should not be expected that an arbitrary TEI file renders well with those scripts (although it should render reasonable in any case.)
If you need modifications, extensions of these scripts, or need to have other TEI/XML/XSLT related work done, please be in touch with me on how I can help.
- samples: contains a number of sample files (of books posted to Project Gutenberg; I am in the process of adding all my TEI master files to GitHub: see https://github.com/GutenbergSource for many more examples).
- sandbox: contains experimental code, better ignored if you don't want to play around.
- schemas: contains schema definition for a number of supplementary XML formats.
- style: contains CSS stylesheets, used by the generated HTML and ePub results.
- test: contains a test TEI file, complete with the generated output in XML, HTML and ePub format. This is used to verify the correct transformation; contains a large number of samples of use, and serves as a regression test when refactoring the XSLT transforms.
- tools: contains perl scripts that can be used to apply the transforms; also includes a number of perl scripts that can be used while preparing TEI files.
