HEB has developed specifications for its XML books which enable publishers, authors and/or vendors to provide all electronic files for text, charts, maps, and other elements in a format that can be published online in a time- and cost-efficient manner. These specifications show how files should be tagged in XML (extensible mark-up language) according to a DTD (document-type definition) that was developed from the TEI Lite (Text Encoding Initiative) DTD with the help of the MPublishing division at the University of Michigan Library.
