3. TEI Lite

TEI Lite

TEI contains a number of customisations, to meet the needs of various users. For example there is TEI Corpus, which meets the specific needs of corpus linguistics, and TEI MS has detailed tagging for all kinds of manuscript description.

For most users much of the TEI tagset is unnecessary and something of a hindrance to learning TEI. TEI Lite is designed to get you encoding quickly.
