Should I turn them all into TEI then, and pass them to David for 
publication on the site? If so, I think I'll wait for all changes to be 
made by the rest of Council.

Who TEI-ed the previous minutes? Is there a schema for them? Can I see 
the XML? There doesn't seem to be an XML link on the page, which means 
they're not actually available as TEI, nor would anyone know they were TEI.

I did do the last day in TEI, but now they've been wiki-edited, my TEI 
doesn't match the agreed version, so I'll have to mark them up again.

In principle there's no reason additions to that list could not point to a page on the TEI wiki instead of to a static XML file. But that would be establishing a significantly new precedent.
