A lengthy discussion, beginning on TEI-L:

http://tei-l.970651.n3.nabble.com/some-questions-about-non-textual-components-and-media-td4022926.html

and moving to TEI-Council:

http://lists.village.virginia.edu/pipermail/tei-council/2012/016805.html

suggests that it would be a good idea to have a <media> element which could be used in the same way <graphic> is used for images. Other suggestions:

@mimeType should be obligatory

@medium should be obligatory, with values including video, audio etc.

The element should remain simple, like <graphic> (which might now be seen as syntactic sugar for it), and not venture into the complexities of similar HTML5 elements

  • i think we are done with this. the <media> element now mandates @mimeType, and doesn't use @type to distinguish formats. we'll see how the public reacts to it...
