the sites that you mention are more or less what I found out too (and put
the pointers on the DC wiki CTS article). However, each site seems to be a
separate installation (deployment, or whatever) of CTS, and none --- as
far as I can laically guess --- uses *another* CTS service for serving
citations or links.
My idea was: let's say I write an article on Herodotus (as the article on
the DC wiki has it). Let's say I quote different textual passages there.
Can I put in my article something similar to:
... as can be seen in <a class="citation" name="Hdt 3.1"
href="urn:cts:something:herodotus.historiae:3.1">Herodotus, start of book
so that, when it is published on the web, the reader will be able to look
the canonical place up? If I can do it, what is the exact syntactical
form for my href call (and then for TEI XML, RDF, etc)? And is there
somebody, someone of us, who is actually doing this at the moment?
And if this is indeed the intended use of CTS, one question remains: where
is the "something" CTS-server from which my article in the example above
can request Herodotus 3.1 (on Perseus? but the citation examples on the DC
wiki do not show the CTS canonical form...)?
If there is (as I suspect) not yet such a server, what can be done to
establish one, and kit it out with enough writers / texts to start using
it for our everyday work, teaching, and so forth?
Excuse so many questions...
