TEI dictionary sample?
Does any of you have a brief tutorial on how to create a valid TEI dictionary?

The wiki did not help, I tried to create a module but it does not work.

Tried to download some the vietnam - english module but it is zipped and so I have no idea how to create a valid TEI.

Any help would be appreciated.

I plan to create a Mandarin - Minnan(Taiwanese both Chinese character and poj) - English dictionary.

Thanks.

Re: TEI dictionary sample?
What do you mean with "does not work"? What exactly failed to work?

We do have a number of TEI dictionaries in beta. They look sparse due to the current filters but they work fine.

I mean, I do not have enough information to make my module work. It maybe that my module does not work because it is written incorrectly.

Can you give me a link to the beta TEI dictionaries. I would like to study the structure. The smaller the file, the better, since I am using dial-up.

Thanks.

Re: TEI dictionary sample?
Here is a sample file of Strong's dictionary in TEI. This was used to produce a dictionary module that is currently in beta.

Re: TEI dictionary sample?
The code below is my initial tei, It only shows the first entry on sword. But there are no way to select the entries. If I go to another glossary and go back, there will be nothing but a : on the screen.
