Abstract

The present report describes and illustrates com¬putational approaches to resolving two difficult research tasks connected with the study of medieval Slavic mixed-content miscellanies: 1) identifying the man¬uscripts in a corpus that are most like other manuscripts in terms of their contents and 2) visualizing graphically the relationships among the contents of manuscripts. All core technology is XML-based (XML, XSLT, SVG).
