Abstract [en]

This paper aims to illustrate how markup might be applied for multiple purposes in research. Here, the TEI/XML encoding scheme was used as a research tool when producing a collective biography in a sociological prosopographical study on prominent Swedish female pioneers around the turn of the century 1900. In this collective biography the markup is used for the exploration of biographical information. Although the markup provided was done for a special reason, namely to extract specific data in order to apply multivariate analyse methods, such as correspondence analysis, it also provides means for presenting, filtering and indexing the material.
