I apologise for the off-topic post, but since my question is related to this thread I thought I might post it here:
I am wondering whether any scripts exist for the reverse process? I would like to convert my xelatex and ledmac based critical edition to TEI. To be more specific: I would like to convert the text and the critical apparatus to TEI and wonder whether this has been done before?
