Digitizing Medieval Iberian History
The project was built on top of a platform called EVT. Essentially, EVT (which was rather outdated) tooks texts, had you shove them into XML files, and used XSLT to generate a bunch of files. Knowing that, I had to learn the nitty-gritty of XSLT to edit pages which turned out to be pretty ugly at times.
For this project, I added audio capabilities, line highlighting, and the ability to view multiple pages of the text (not just the original page) as well as multiple translations of each of those pages. My hope was that in building this tool I would help scholars by basically “open sourcing” these rare, archaic texts.
