15 EUROCALL September 2006 — Universidad de Granada Rendering authentic text samples Linked samples Extracted samples Embedded samples

16 EUROCALL September 2006 — Universidad de Granada Linked samples The sample is linked to the original document (e.g. pdf document) –Original context & layout –Full context –Problem: sample skimming

17 EUROCALL September 2006 — Universidad de Granada Extracted samples The example is extracted from the original document (e.g. KWIC concordance) –Sample shown in immediate context –Layout: not authentic –Context: limited

18 EUROCALL September 2006 — Universidad de Granada Embedded samples The example is embedded in the original document –Sample shown in full context –Layout: authentic –Problem: recreating and indexing the document

19 EUROCALL September 2006 — Universidad de Granada XML -> XHTML XML: extensible markup language Stylesheets: –CSS: cascading style sheet –XSLT: XML style sheet transformations XHTML

20 EUROCALL September 2006 — Universidad de Granada Web reinvents standardisation SGML: standard generalized markup language (1968; ISO in 1986) HTML: hypertext markup language (1993) XML: extensible markup language (1998) XHTML: extensible HTML
