To generate schemas (RELAX NG; or, if you can't use RELAX NG you can
also generate DTDs and W3C XML Schema), either submit the ODD files
the TEI "Roma" website[1] or, having installed `roma`[2] on your
machine[3] issue something like
$ roma2 --patternprefix=lib3_ --noxsd --dochtml --nodtd --isoschematron lib3.odd .

To generate the main HTML documentation for the entire system, use
something like
$ xmllint --xinclude main-driver.odd > /tmp/main-driver.odd
$ ~/Documents/Stylesheets/teitohtml /tmp/main-driver.odd
If `teitohtml` does not run on your system, you could submit the
/tmp/main-driver.odd file to the OUCS OxGarage service
( instead.

    that combines customization ODDs with the TEI Guidelines and
    produces schemas and reference documentation.

    or likely a GNU/Linux system can be found at
