    Abstract:
    This paper briefly reviews the history of the transformation of the New Variorum edition of The Winter’s Tale (WT) into an electronic edition. Then it turns to the beautifully successful interface designed by Alan Galey to exploit the XML tagging of WT by Julia Flanders. It ends with a look at the advantages (chiefly increased accuracy) and disadvantages (chiefly the instability over time of TEI and XML, which are under constant revision) of the transformation of the book edition to the electronic medium.
