Do you remember our very successful Creating Digital Texts workshop last October, at which James Cummings provided intensive training in the use of oXygen as a text-encoding tool for producing digital documents? I’m pleased to say that Dr Kristopher Grint from the University’s School of History has agreed to give a follow-on course next Wednesday afternoon (March 11, 2-5pm) in the Swallowgate computer classroom.
Kris will show students how to use XSL (eXtensible Stylesheet Language) to transform encoded documents into more accessible formats such as HTML pages for web publication or PDF for distribution as an eBook. He will draw on his own experience of using XSL on the Jeremy Bentham Project to show examples of how this can be done.
A few places are still available on the course, and you can sign up by going to CAPOD’s Personal Development Management System at https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/pdms/Afternoon tea and cake will be provided!
