WeGA data package


The WeGA data package is a collection of TEI and MEI documents, constituting the digital edition of the Carl-Maria-von-Weber-Gesamtausgabe. The files are derived from our internal WeGA TEI format and are valid against TEI_all and mei_all respectively. WeGA element additions such as tei:workName are mapped to the more generic tei:name element, but no information was dropped. Internal references are provided via @ref attributes and full URIs, rather than magic @key attributes.
