The primary goal of this revision has been to make available a new and corrected version of the TEI Guidelines which:
is expressed in XML and conforms to a TEI-conformant XML DTD;
generates a set of DTD fragments that can be combined together to form either SGML or XML document type definitions;
corrects blatant errors, typographical mishaps, and other egregious editorial oversights;
can be processed and maintained using readily available XML tools instead of the special-purpose ad hoc software originally used for TEI P3.
A second major design goal of this revision has been to ensure that the DTD fragments generated would not break existing documents: in other words, that any document conforming to the original TEI P3 SGML DTD would also conform to the new XML version of it. Although full backwards compatibility cannot be guaranteed, we believe our implementation is consistent with that goal.

The Library of Congress Subject Headings/DDC page is a "list of LC subject headings is selected from recent Weekly Lists accompanied by candidate DDC numbers from Edition 21. The purpose of the list is to provide classifier assistance for topics of recent interest not mentioned explicitly in Edition 21. The DDC numbers listed are not exhaustive, and the schedules and tables should be consulted before applying a number from this list."
The New and Changed Entries page provides PDF and Word versions of those entries. I have set a TrackEngine on the LCSH/DDC page to get the page e-mailed to me whenever it changes.
I've added the ability to make comments to the postings. Let me know if it is not working for you.
