The TEI Critical Apparatus Toolbox (formerly TEI Critical Edition Toolbox) "is a tool for people preparing a natively digital TEI critical edition.

"The Toolbox lets you:

  • Check your encoding: offers facilities to display your edition while it is still in the making, and check the consistency of your encoding
  • Display parallel versions: choose the sigla of the witnesses, and the different versions of the text, following each chosen witness, will be displayed in parallel columns."[1]


User commentary

System requirements

  • You simply need a recent browser to access the application and upload your XML file (nothing to install).[2]
