Cheers Knappster, you just made me chuckle slightly while reading an XML file. I never thought that would happen.

I almost structured my comment in XML, but realized I'm too old to spend time on this sort of thing. I'm glad somebody out there feels otherwise.

Hey, interesting. Not heard of the TEI before. Should I think of it as a competitor to the Dublin Core set of elements, or can/should you use Dublin Core elements in TEI documents (without doing Namespace stuff, I mean)?

Am I missing something or did they only mark up selected words and phrases, not the full lyrics? Isn't the ability to have your annotations inline in the text part of the idea with TEI?

...oddly, I'm just sitting here going "Man, those kinds of scrolls are a *bitch* to roll up in FCP. I wonder if they just used a truly giant set of Illustrator documents, or they went for After Effects instead."
