I agree with what has been written -- fabulous news Christian. Either 
dates are fine with me. And please do let the rest of us know if we can 
do anything in support of the public symposium. I wonder if we might 
have a poster sessions in which all of us can demo projects we are 
working on utilizing the TEI, and which would allow for more informal 
interaction with those attending the symposium.
