I agree completely. But we must be aware that the primary data
is image data - at least in the field of usual literary studies. A good
example is the Versioning Machine announced earlier in this
list: The image of the testimony allows to check up the
transcription and markup results.
What will say "a corpus is citable" (Thieberger in the initial
posting) in this case? Do we need a common referencing
system to connect images and (scholarly) text?

With kind regards, Herbert Wender
