Dear Charles,

The manuscript descriptions in the "Europa Inventa" catalogue of medieval manuscripts in Australia are based on the TEI P5 elements.

But we converted them to database fields (PostgreSQL) and built a database search interface, rather than making them available as marked-up and searchable XML files.

See: http://europa.arts.uwa.edu.au/manuscripts 

The database is also included in the University of Sheffield's  "Manuscripts Online" service: http://www.manuscriptsonline.org/resources/ei/
