Description: The aim of the Scholarly Digital Editions of Slovenian Literature project is to compile a collection of digital critical editions of Slovenian literary texts and sources for literary studies. The majority of editions include digital facsimiles, diplomatic transcription and critical transcription. Currently, two pilot editions are available on-line, several others being prepared.

Implementation description: The digital editions use TEI P4 (XML) for their encoding model, with the following tagsets: prose, figures, linking, and transcription. We also employ local modifications, which add page and line container elements, fix the values of rend and place attributes and make some other slight modifications. The editions themselves are each encoded as one TEI.2 document, with nested <div>isions explicating their internal structure, be it separate poems, sermons, letters, or their different transcriptions. Facsimile files are stored externally, with the figure elements providing the linkage.
