Internet-Draft     The 'application/tei+xml' mediatype        March 2010


1.  Introduction

   The TEI is an international and interdisciplinary standard that is
   widely used by libraries, museums, publishers, and individual
   scholars to represent all kinds of textual material for online
   research and teaching.  [TEI]

   In order to increase the possibilities for generic XML processing
   this document defines the 'application/tei+xml' media type in
   accordance with [RFC3023]

2.  Registration of MIME type 'application/tei+xml'

      MIME media type name: application

      MIME subtype name: tei+xml

      Required parameters: None

      Optional parameters: charset

         Identical with charset in [RFC3023]

      Encoding considerations:

         By virtue of TEI XML content being XML, it has the same
         considerations when sent as 'application/tei+xml' as does XML
         in general.  See RFC 3023 [RFC3023], Section 3.2.

      Security considerations:

         TEI elements may refer to arbitrary URIs.  Hence the security
         issues of [RFC3986], section 7, apply.

      Interoperability considerations: None.

      Published specification:

         This media type registration is for TEI documents as described
         in the TEI Guidelines[TEI].

      Applications which use this media type:

         There are currently no applications using the media type
         'application/tei+xml'.  It will be an entirely new type which
         is registered in order to allow for the deployment of TEI on
         the World Wide Web as a first class XML application.

      Additional information:

         Magic number(s):

            There is no single initial octet sequence that is always
            present in TEI documents.

         file extension(s):

            TEI documents have most often the extension '.xml'.  Other
            common extensions are '.tei', '.teiCorpus' and '.odd'.

         Macintosh File Type Code(s)

            TEXT

         Object Identifier(s) or OID(s)

            Not applicable

3.  Recognizing TEI files

   A [TEI] file usually contains either of the strings

      <tei

      <TEI

   near the beginning.

   Examples: Older versions of the standard may start with <TEI.2, more
   recent ones with <TEI.  More specialized types of documents may start
   with <teiCorpus.

Internet-Draft     The 'application/tei+xml' mediatype        March 2010


4.  Fragment identifier

   Documents having the media type 'application/tei+xml', use the
   fragment identifier notation in the same way as does 'application/
   xml'.  This is specified in [RFC3023] or its successors.

Internet-Draft     The 'application/tei+xml' mediatype        March 2010


5.  Security considerations

   An XML resource identifier does not in itself compromise data
   security.  When converted to IRIs or URIs and used to provide access
   to network resources, care must be taken to properly interpret the
   data to prevent unintended access.
