    I am happy to announce that the first series of letters in the Hone Correspondence has just been re-edited and published. While the changes may not seem dramatic to return viewers, the underlying XML structure is now much enriched and the letters themselves have been produced by a customized XSLT engine. The result is a more readable and easily navigable set of web pages for the letters and, ultimately more significant, a publicly available set of TEI-encoded files for more effective scholarly analysis and more seamless integration into larger collections of nineteenth-century documents and electronic texts. This series of letters is accessible from the Correspondence Index; just click on the link to “Hone Letters, 1780-1818.” As always, I would be most grateful to hear comments and corrections, either directly to me via email or as comments to the present blog post.  [March 27 update: The letters through 1824 have now been edited and updated with links to the TEI masters.  I would be happy to hear any comments or suggestions regarding the design of the correspondence pages, and, of course, I would be most grateful to hear about any errors that I need to correct.]
