Dramaturgy: XML

Fragment of Cyclops script

I’m about halfway through the 60,000-word Circe chapter of Ulysses, converting it to LaTeX.

For several years, I took the plaintext from the Project Gutenberg etext, prepared the script in XML, used XSLT to transform it into HTML, tarted it up with CSS, and then saved it as a PDF. You can see a screenshot above.

I’ll write up tomorrow why I switched to LaTeX last year.
