see some TEI-like folks.

As Chris Lilley asks, are they mad, or not? I
cannot decide

Hello www-international,

My attention was recently drawn to this document, by the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington:

Developing standards for encoding languages and writing systems in the editing of Greek and Latin texts

Its interesting both for the way it reflects current work (eg, use of RFC 3066bis) and the way it seems to diverge from it (either I don't understand what they mean by a 'mapping', or else they propose character abuse and don't understand that XML has a single document character set).
