Abstract: This article is a revised and extended version of [VBG, 07]. We conjecture that the digitalization of historical text documents as a basis of data mining and information retrieval for the purpose of progress in the history sciences is urgently needed. We present a novel, specialist XML tool-suite supporting the working historian in the transcription of original medieval charters into a machine-readable form, and we also address some latest developments which can be found in the field since the publication of [VBG, 07].

Keywords: XML tagging, digitalization and preparation ofmedieval documents for the Semantic Web, history-informatics, tool-support
